    Lots of Viruses

    Our puremessage has picked up at least 10 virus emails and deleted them. All from different yahoo accounts to different staff emails, with the subject line from Amazon.

    Also had a few virus emails from 'couriers'.

    Anyone notice the same? These emails aren't reaching their recipients but is there anything we can do?

    I had that to my personal email yesterday with a .zip file attached. Reported as scam and emailed my friends to let them know if they receive one, not to open.
    Don't know where they get the addresses from - it's so frustrating.

    We've had 2 of the Amazon ones since Monday.

    I only heard about the first one because Sophos kept deleting the attachment when it was downloaded.

    We have to 'sit tight' apparently. It's not getting into our system, it's just the notifications which are annoying!
