Below is the full header except for my email address which is not board at
ogs. I have been receiving about 1 virus spam a day for a couple of weeks
supposedly from board..... I know that this is bogus as the board is really
a distribution list at the ogs.org site.

W32.Netsky.P@mm was the attachment. I want to stop these giys. The address
board at ogs.org is forged. I have modified it to prevent it from being
harvested. Also I doubt that support at symantec would be sending me this
message.

If you want to email me send mail to rwma rble at yaho o dot com <
no spaces and change the "at" and "dot"

Thanks in advance for your help

If that is true (and it might not be) you stick that into the whois

so I suggest you forward the received messages with FULL HEADERS

sort it out (if it is really from one of their systems or customers), or
ring Barry Wright.
