I'm not sure where to post this, but anyone tell me why or how to stop it.....
Way back when, I emailed everyone I practically knew telling them to email their congressman regarding the Food Allergen Act. In the email, I included the link to FANN's site for easy email. Ever since then, this original email seems to be sending itself out every so often. It's crazy! How do I know? I originally sent the email to my work address as well, and keep receiving it there. Plus, everytime it's sent, I receive a message regarding a friend's email being disconnected. Does anyone have an explanation? It's not that it's a bad email, but the more it's sent the more annoyed that people will get with me. Can we say overkill? HELP!

My guess would be that you have a computer virus. I had a problem a few months back with the Klez virus that got transmitted through an email that looked like it came from FAAN, so I wonder if that is involved somehow. Everybody in my address book started getting emails addressed from other people in my address book. I would suggest you run a virus scan and see what comes up. If you don't have antivirus software you can download it. I have a program from McAfee, there is also Norton Antivirus, and I am sure there are others. It can be complicated, though, because that particular virus, and others, can delete antivirus software, so you may end up having to talk to someone in technical support. Good luck! And never open attachments unless you are absolutely sure where they came from.
