DO NOT PASS THESE STUPID MESSAGES AROUND THE INTERNET

There is no way that reading a mail message in your email viewer can erase
your hard drive or infect your system with a virus.

If the email has an attachment, say an .EXE file, and you double-click it
or execute it without knowing what it does, then you could probably be
inviting all sorts of * results.  That would require specific action by
you tho,  at your own discretion.

There are people out there that post these ridiculous warnings for a joke,
and they seem to get reposted all over the world by the gullible
recipients.  If you receive one of these warnings, please inform the person
who sent it to you that it is a stupid joke.  Maybe one day this nonsense
will be stopped.

Les.
