We spent years trying to educate people not to believe "virus

Except these days, I see very, very few hoax mails, and lots of "I
caught this, it sent itself to everytone on my list, and you're one
of them...". And to me, that's a whole different kettle of fish...
Wow. Your experience is almost exactly the polar opposite of mine,
Chuq. I get tons of the hoax viruses and very very few of the real
ones. I'm almost thinking of filtering on the string "this was just
announced by Intel and IBM".
