I'm back (I had to do somem "real" work & go to clarinet lesson).

Only if your computer created an attachment _and_ you double clicked
(or executed via some command line) Happy99.exe would you be infected.
Never, ever, ever execute any .exe or .com file found in this list.

I have had filters in place for any MIME extension that's dangerous;
somehow this one was a straight uuencode and was not a MIME attachment
(it used the "old fashioned" way of sending an executable file via mail.
Used to be you had to decode it manually; not anymore :^( )

I am busy writing a filter right now; probably be another half hour or
so. Anyone sending a uuencoded message will have it bounced back to them
...
