Address Book and Virus (Outlook Express 5.0)
A friend said that by putting a phony name with no email address (such as !0000 in the first name) a virus would not be able to use the address book to send itself on to others. Supposedly the virus encounters the first entry in the address book with no email address and can not go further. Is there any merit to this idea?
