Dear SHAKSPEReans:

Although this is not supposed to happened, it appears that SHAKSPER
might have been wormed. Eric and I are looking into it now. The error

Honey, then delete the file immediately. If you have opened an attached

Again, we know something about how the message was distributed, but not
if it is, in fact, infectious.

Sorry,
Hardy
