Infected E-mails and Spam
Many worms, trojans, or viruses forge (copy) the "From" e-mail address, making them appear to
come from someone you know (such as RootsWeb.com). Or, they may have a file name that would make it look
like a legitimate e-mail address. Spam, or an infected e-mail might indicate a message came from RootsWeb.com,
or from a mailing list at RootsWeb.com, when it didn't. An infected computer is sending these forged messages
to you privately. RootsWeb.com cannot prevent these forgeries, nor the bounces for failed deliveries.
