    thnks very helpful - had no idea what it might and have not requested a
    patch. Big cos do not need to e-mail me. I will delete it in POP3 and assume
    it was an aberration. I will store your info on hoax stuff and read up.

    Cheers

    Do large companies email you often?
    Microsoft has no way of knowing who you are or what you have running in
    order to give you advice on what you need to do next.
    Microsoft does NOT send patches via email without prior knowledge/contact
    from the customer - a requested patch only.

    Next time you get an email you are not sure whether to believe or not -
    don't.
    If you cannot just do that:

    Jos, a simple thing to remember about secure e-mails is that is you're not
    sure who or why someone or some entity e-mailed you just delete it. In the
    case of Microsoft it's fairly simple to find out. Open a new Browser window
    go to www.microsoft.com and check the website for what they supposedly
    e-mailed you. Or do a search either way is a viable way to ensuire that
    you're not recieving phished e-mails. Happy surfing.
