The virus (Gibe-F) does not need Outlöök, it has its own smtp-engine and
is therefore idependent of any mail agent. It will, however, read
addresses from Outlook Address book, if I am not mistaken. But it will
also read almost anything else on the disk to find valid email addresses.
On top of that it will try ICQ and whatever to disseminate itself.

PS: I opted for changing my from. The list address is in the virusses
email database anyway, as soon as the PC is infected. And the list server
obviously has a virus filter. So at least I avoid the virus being send
to one further address (i.e. mine :-).
