This email is to ALERT that you (or virus infected on your computer) 
might have sent out the email that is infected by virus to indicated 
receiver(s). Please scan your machine for possible virus infection.  
Free antivirus software such as AntiVir (http://www.free-av.com) or 
AVG, Free Edition (http://www.grisoft.com/html/us_downl.htm) or
Free online virus scan (http://housecall.antivirus.com) are available.

before installing or using these software, to avoid unexpected 
problem.  You have been warned!)

Please note that, with today's virus, it is possible the virus 
infected on your computer sent the email out automatically without 
your awareness.  Also, recent case(s) indicated that your email 
address might have been used (or faked) as the sender of that 
virus-infected email by someone else or by the virus infected 
on other people's computer.  A quick look at 'Trace Information' 
shown above should be helpful to distinguish whether 
the virus-infected email has been sent out from your mail server 
or someone else's mail server.
