The W32.Nimda.A@mm(html) with a .dat or .data attachment is making it's rounds again. It *appears to be* coming in email *if* you have a website.
Since it is in an html format, it can possibly still do damage to your pc. If you have your *preview pane* open, it may be best to close it. By closing it, the email message is not viewable unless you double click it to open.
In case you don't know where to close the preview pane in Outlook Express, click on *view* at the top, then click on *layout*, then remove the check mark in *Show Preview Pane*, then click apply.
To read the message or to see where it originated, click on properties, then message source to read it.
That Nimda critter is a nasty one!
