Our campus anti-virus software, [http://www.avast.com Avast], installs a plug-in to Outlook. This plug-in runs whenever you're in Outlook, checking messages for viruses and malware. If ever a message is sent without a subject line, Avast will automatically enter [avast SUSPICIOUS] in the subject. It does not mean you have a virus, or that you received one. Moral: always enter a brief meaningful subject for your messages. PS: Avast also has a good, free version for personal use.
