Many viruses these days forge the From line, by picking one at random out of
the person who's been infected's address book.

The mailing lists on igtc.com cannot send you a virus. 

1) Any attachements sent to the list get stripped off before a message gets 
   posted to the list
2) The list only sends plain text
3) igtc.com is a linux box :)

If you get a virus message purporting to come from igtc.com, I assure you,
it's a forgery.
