One thing that is happening is that list members' computers are infected
with a virus that causes them to send (or appear to have sent) a message to
the listserv which the listserv rejects. So the person gets a message saying
they can't post even though they didn't intend to send anything.

Some infected posts are getting through the membership screen, but are being
caught by the listserv virus checker. It then sends out messages about
having caught an infected message. Some people are misinterpreting those
messages, thinking they have received a virus and their local machine has
caught it.

The IT people are looking into the remaining issues.

Try not to stay tuned ...
