Thanks. I was poking around last night for a DNS lookup command and
didn't know it was called "dig" :D I ended up using traceroute to
get the domain names but when I tried it for 126.96.36.199, it only
displayed asterisks (as opposed to yahoo, which didn't - bearing in
mind that yahoo has a number of addresses) Why do some IP addresses

So it was sent from someone connected to a bigpond account in
Queensland, *not* from yahoo.com as spoofed by the virus (during the
HELO or EHLO part of the smtp transaction).
You could also point people to some anit-virus page that mentions how
the virus in question does spoof the sender.
Do you Yahoo!?
