    I see the following folders on my PC:

    C:\My Documents\myemail\john@mail_uptone_co_uk\0\
    C:\My Documents\myemail\john@mail_uptone_co_uk\1\
    C:\My Documents\My Pictures\myemail\john@mail_uptone_co_uk\0\
    C:\My Documents\My Pictures\myemail\john@mail_uptone_co_uk\1\

    All the files in them are like this: m_2254.dat

    What are these dat files? My virus scanner has just found that some of them
    have viruses in them.
