I received a strange email at work that had nothing in the sender field, as well as the subject line. When I looked at the email, in the body it said "QUIT". What might this be?

This was probably a begginning hacker, using telnet to send spoofed messages, and didnt use the correct commands.
Dont worry, when I say hacker in this case it isnt malicious

It could also be something like a spammer that accidentally sent this message, or a mailing list that made a mistake, etc.
