A friend of mine received an email from me about penis enlargement pills. I use entourage on a mac. How can I stop this if this is a virus? What should I tell my email host if it is not just spam virus?

who is your email host?
Also just to be safe, make sure to change your email password. Since your on  a mac, i doubt you have a virus. I think the spammers got a hold of your address probably from one of your friends who system might be infected. As of now, the only thing you can do is to make sure you change your password.
