    Every day I get about three empty emails, from: "sender unspecified", to: "none", subject: (no subject).

    It seems spooky to me. Am I getting attacked by something or someone? I have Norton antivirus and it doesn't give me any warning.

    Or are they failed spams?

    Should I be worrying?

    Thanks, Frank

    This is probrably just SPAM.. You wont be infected if you don't open or run anything from the email... In the long run though, make sure Norton is updated.

    I get these on occasion too. What I do is right click go to properties then view source. Usually ends up being porn. If this procedure is unsafe please let me know. Have not been infected this way. Also I always keep my AV up to date.
