Came up as here's some photos email from a mate. 3 supposed JPGs with the DSC and 4 digits. All pointed to executables. My AV caught it. Deleted email and warned friend. I think they were some kind of trojan downloaders with an "8" in the name.

Er no, because I wouldn't use any of your services IF YOU FUCKING PAID ME!
By the way how's the WORD case going? Have you bought your way out of it yet? Arse!
Ps. Isn't it about time we had a psycho Ballmer picture on Reg? as Bill looks like he's off to Europe (Scorpios) with his wife, that is if the Greek courts can be persuaded to let him buy the island - or so I hear.

Nope that's a standard Hotmail security feature, they block anything that's relayed through an alternate source - such as a mobile phone mail server (if your email address is not with that mobile phone company).
