Yep, I can second it. I've seen the same thing where I work in the past couple days and they did the same thing, tagging admin on to the front of the company site and saying something in effect of "This email account is going to be deactivated, please open the zip file to see details" Has the potential to be ugly and cause problems to those not knowing its a spoof. :angry:
