The following information is from Howstuffworks at

"A Trojan horse, aptly named after the seemingly harmless tool of destruction in 
Homer's Iliad, secretly carries often-damaging software in a "plain wrapper." The 
plain wrapper is normally an e-mail file attachment from someone you may or may not 
know. The file attachment name itself can also be very misleading. When you run the 
attachment, it can do all sorts of things, from erasing files to changing your 
desktop. It then sends itself along to other people in your address book so that it 
can propagate itself."

So the messages that you are receiving that appear to be from LM_NET are probably 
Trojan horses. Since most listservs don't allow attachments, receiving an 
attachment from a listserv address is a good clue that the message probably isn't 
what it seems to be, and the best thing then is to delete.
