Please deal with this person. As everyone with a third grade understanding of computers knows, these worms and viruses forge the headers of e-mail. Despite that, this user's obvious lack of knowledge on computers, networks and viruses does not excuse his or her threats and behavior.
Didn't save his 2nd mail apparently, but it is all quoted in my reply.

As previously stated, one of the prolific viruses or worms has been sent to him, and forged the headers to make it appear to be from me. Your user (the moron) clearly doesn't understand this concept and resorted to threats (see quoted material below). In keeping with the AUP of ATT.NET, I reported this violation to abuse and CC'd the loser (a morris). I am adding a block in our local sendmail junk file for said loser. Please deal with him according to your own policy.
