Sorry - i gave slightly misleading info in my post.  I actually ended up

Perhaps it was just coincidental timing.

Did you know?  Most email-borne viruses use a false sender address.
Therefore you cannot track down the sender using that address.  Instead,
keep your virus scanning software up-to-date and just delete any
suspicious emails you receive.
