This message includes a tip to help avoid spreading viruses. Since many viruses automatically email themselves to people in your address book, create a new entry that will foil the attempt. Give the new entry the name of !0000 or AAAAAA and do not put any email address in the entry. That way it will be the first in the address book. When a virus tries to send itself to every address, it won't get very far because the familiar error message will appear that says it could not be sent because of either a missing email address or a bad address.
