Hi friends,

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? Any ideas what they are and why?

Should I be worrying?

Thanks, Frank

Thanks Jack for quick response.

I did the control + f3 thing in Oe and got an empty pane for message source. Now what?

Thanks, Frank

Interesting thought. I'd say fairly unlikely; worst case with Email scanners is <B>usally</B> to change your pop server to "localhost". But well worth looking into.....
