weird emails from Zap2It,,,

Discussion in 'Windows Media Center' started by Patrick Brazil, Aug 15, 2003.

  1. Patrick Brazil,

    I would like to apologize to you for an incident which
    occurred last night that resulted in our Zap2it Daily
    Update subscribers being sent several emails attached
    with a virus. The virus was a relatively harmless mass-
    mailing virus that duplicates and sends itself out to
    others while not really affecting the host machine (For
    more information about the virus, please refer to the end
    of this email).

    Zap2it.com is committed to providing the best service
    possible in all of our products, and I can assure you
    that this will not happen again. We are changing the way
    our email is created and delivered to ensure this, and
    expect to resume delivery of the Daily Update mid next
    week as a result.

    At the same time, I realize there have been past issues
    with the delivery of the Zap2it Daily Update and the
    changes we are putting in place should improve the entire
    process.

    I truly appreciate your understanding and patience as we
    make these changes, and hope you will continue to use
    Zap2it.com as your source for "What to Watch!" If you
    would like to unsubscribe please visit this link
    (http://www.zap2it.com/index/email) or you can provide me
    with your email address and I will remove you from the
    recipient list.

    If you have any questions about the specific virus that
    was attached to the email, including information about
    removal, please visit the following links:

    Again, I apologize for the inconvenience and thank you
    for your support of the Zap2it Daily Update and
    Zap2it.com. If you have any questions or comments,
    please feel free to contact me directly.
