    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

    Next time you get one do a "view source" on it...Ctrl+F3 in OE....See you help file for other mail programs

    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

    Could an email server virus scanner be doing this?

    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.....
