    I use IE 7 (elevated security settings) and Outlook Express, Windows XP Home Edition.

    Please don't tell me to switch to other software.

    In the past I received spam from a certain organization, with at the end of the header the number 127.something, a valid local host. The content of the email was a picture, with colors and all.

    I don't receive non-spam email messages in html, I have configured it that way.

    Today, I received several spam emails, the content being pictures !

    Nothing that looked like a local host was at the end of the header.

    Does anyone know how that's done ? I'm concerned about security, should I be ? I did scan for viruses and spyware, performing two full scans, nothing was found.

    I didn't have a spam filter, but I do have one now !

    Still, I'd like an answer to my questions.
