    I am running WinXP Professional and use Outlook Express for email. I hope someone can help answer my question.

    I keep recieving an email that has no header, no subject, no sender and even no content. In other words a completely blank message.

    When I click on message properties, the following shows up. Since there is nothing there I can't believe it is spam and I am wondering if there is something sinister I should worry about. I have recieved this message at least 10 times in the last couple of weeks and I'm not sure if they all came from the same sender as I only became concerned about it recently.

    Return-Path: <>
    Received: from ([])
    (InterMail vM. 201-253-122-130-105-20030824) with SMTP
    id <>;

    On another note that may or may not be related, I have noticed that my Norton Script Blocking services mysteriously stops in my Windows Admin tools and I have had to restart it at least twice today.

    I have run Adaware, Spybot, Norton and Hijack This, my system shows as clean. I even have Spyware Blaster running.

    Here is my task list if it means anything. The system is an IBM T30

    it sounds like a virus email. you should delete them. and better yet get mail washer and preview your mail on the sever. as there are some new variations of net sky that don,t even need an atchment to infect you. just clicking on then in outlook virus express will let them run. :blink:
