In case you haven't figured it out yet, the recent rash of posts by some of
our list members is symptomatic of a virus; Arjan van Ijzendoorn says it
is the Aliz virus. There is information about it here:

So if you're using Outlook, don't open anything suspicious.

BTW, the link above says that

  The worm does not install itself and contains no other payload.

so I guess it is sort of chain-letter worm, and relatively benign.
