    hello bigc
    yes this is the only time- and i havent again and ive run every scan i can think of and they have found nothing so im assuming it was nothing--ive ran tds scan-adaware-spybot s&d and i have wormguard and have also ran other online scans so i really dont know but it must have been a mistake of somekind
    thanks for your reply

    hi AMRX
    thanks for the link--appreciate it.i believe this must be an issue with the mailscanner.i have norton antivirus and its updated every day and i fixed it to scan all files like it said in the link and it found nothing so i believe it was nothing afterall.something with the mailscanner as you said or just a mistake
    thank you
    rita :)

    still to be on the safe side you can test your system by web scanners.
