    I notice something interesting about each of the W32/Sobig-F emails that
    arrive each day to clog my Inbox: while the month and day in the Date
    field seem to be current, the year is "2001" (though bounces are 2003).
    I have read several descriptions of W32/Sobig-F and none of them mention
    the date phenomenon. Is the 2001 year thingie typical?

    it's coincidental... the reason you're seeing it on all sobig.f emails
    now is that sobig.f was supposed to stop spreading after sept. 10 2003
    so only machines where the date is set to some time in the past will be
    able to spread it now...
