iframe which I now removed from message)

Subject: Beware FAKE e-mails being sent as though from list
Date: Monday 30 Dec 2002 3:01 pm

To: debian-user@lists.debian.org

I just received an e-mail that looked as though it at come from this list,
(from "nate" ) but in closer inspection it had done nothing of the sort
having been forwarded through a mail server at free.fr from a dial up account
at proxad.net

It seems to have a screensave file dressed up to look like a standard text

Here is the start of it (inc headers)
