    Couldn't it just as easily be someone outside this group who uses
    Windows and happens to have Wendy's address in their address book? The
    W3C Smartlist mailing list software rejects messages sent by
    non-subscribers, but as the virus is forging Wendy's address I assume
    the message would get through, whether the infected party is
    subscribed to this mailing list or not.
