Yes, the list does do some screening but I do not know
how extensively. For example, the message which your
PC automatically forwarded yesterday was quarantined
so that only I received it.

At the same time, any intenet user would be wise to
have a copy of Norton Antivirus or McAfee and make
sure to refresh your virus defs regularly.
