Hello Blake, it looks as if you got two messages with the virus then.  I 
don't think the sender's address has anything to do with it, the attachment 
is the problem.  I think you may have to have your system checked 
out.  They all have this sort of message - apparently there are two sets 
of        wording for the message

This is the address that I found more info on
