Just to give a heads up, it appears there is a rampant computer virus going around.  So far my email server has received 3 infected emails today (8/18/2009) addressed to 3 different email addresses.  Each of the emails contained .zip attachments that were identified by AVG as being infected by "Trojan horse Injector.FG".  Email purporting to be from UPS and DHL, containing .zip attachments should not be trusted!

Dear customer!
