Could they be coming from the latest virus, W32.Swen or any of the many copycats?

If they are coming from a known trusted friend, without attachments then more than likely it is a problem at the server level and I'd suggest he contact his ISP.

Verify that his version of OE has DBX files. If so, a corrupted file may be the cause.
1) take any emails you want to keep out of inbox/outbox/sent items/deleted items/drafts folders.
2) be sure OE is closed
3) This is the DBX file you need to delete:
POP3UIDL

Here is where it is located in Win 98se:
C:\WINDOWS\APPLICATION DATA\IDENTITIES\unique long number\MICROSOFT\OUTLOOK EXPRESS\xxxxx.DBX

Outlook Express will rebuild - but if you are nervous
about deleting or just want to save the data, move
them and save them until you are satisfied that OE
is working properly.
