I just received this, does it have something to do with the virus

LISTSERV at ABLIST.ABOUT.COM has  just received the enclosed  delivery error
as a result of a probe sent to your BECKWITH at SNF.STANFORD.EDU account for
the ABOUTNEWS list.  If you are reading this message,  it means that your
mail system is successfully delivering mail to your mailbox, while at the
same time  reporting that an  error has occurred (or,  alternatively, the
error could be due to a system  problem which has since then been fixed).
