Or it's likely that someone that they know who has Absolute Cycle in their address book, and it's using their address to send it.

OmniGLH's address sent me some stuff last week.

Reply back Dan...

Mac's and viruses...

I have a Mac...don't really get them, that affect my Mac.  Maybe it's Dan's work PC?  Ask him?

I had that happen to me some time ago. Had a lot of angry people thinking I was sending out porn. Aol contacted me to let me know what the situation was. It happens form time to time. But it really sucked!

The sender is  ABSOLTEPRFRMNCE@aol.com and the TO: field shows Kazu79@aol.com so they BCC"d me I suppose.  I did reply back, twice.  First time I was polite.  5 minutes and 12 emails later, I wasn't too nice.

Nah, my work PC doesn't get connected to the internet.  It's a standalone.   All this is on the Mac.   None of the messages contain a virus or attachment, so my .mac membership didn't stop them from coming thru.

Dan...

Let it go.  Sheesh!

So you got a bunch of e-mails, press delete and be done with it.
