I believe it will attempt to autoload if you use Outlook on windows. So
if you use windows, and received the orginal (or in Wolfgang's case,
sent it), take your machine off the Internet until it is cleaned out and
has an updated virus checker (if this is the virus that has been in the
news lately, and it probably is, it means it is sending your passwords
or credit card type information to someone). Nice to be using linux.
