An EMAIL that says "HEY" in the subject line

Asked by Gary K. Tyler on 2012-05-09

I Didn't know of the problem until the yahoo mailer demon started sending all these email back to me that had "Hey" in the subject line. I thought that had been deleted two days ago when I received a warning not to open an email. I deleted it and thought it was done. I must have picked it up again some where else. I installed Clam antivirus but can't find it now to use it..

This sounds like an issue with yahoo mail.

I'd log in to the yahoo mail web interface and delete it there, you can use clamtk to virus scan

Can you help with this problem?
