From the rootsweb help page:
Infected E-mails and Spam
Many worms, trojans, or viruses forge (copy) the "From" e-mail address,
making them appear to come from someone you know (such as RootsWeb.com). Or,
they may have a file name that would make it look like a legitimate e-mail
address. Spam, or an infected e-mail might indicate a message came from
RootsWeb.com, or from a mailing list at RootsWeb.com, when it didn't. An
infected computer is sending these forged messages to you privately.
RootsWeb.com cannot prevent these forgeries, nor the bounces for failed
deliveries. To learn more, and for links to online sites that can verify
your computer is clean of these viruses....http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/
I agree with you Barbara......... there is no need to be rude. I don't think
anyone on this list would deliberately send a virus to anyone.
