I woul have to agree the Spamm is getting quite large with the AOL BR mail, 
i sean a couple come in today with .br and i belive that they hhave trojans 
on there systems if you open there e-mails they can come via back door 
hacker it has happen to me on the list and it cost me like 280 for my pc to 
get fix and to tight down the server witch i was nt happy about i lost all 
my backend scripts from his person using .br -mail..
