Exactly. I got the same file this morning. I probably have it at home
too, because I subscribe to this list from two different accounts. Any
file with the ".exe" suffix is an executable. All you have to do is
click on it and it executes you:-(.

Your machine gets infected only if you run the file by clicking on it,
or by saving it someplace and running it from a shell command line.
Right now you're okay.

Get it out of whatever attachments directory you have (i.e., Eudora by
default writes everything to a folder called [drive]:eudoraattach.
If need be, run whatever search program you have to find "happy99.exe"
and then go kill it. Whatever you do, don't run it.
