    XP SP3, signature up to date on rest of security. I'm just in the habit of using Outlook Express as my client when corresponding with some of my family as opposed to any of my gmail accounts. Every time I send a mail, Pfw alerts that I've sent x emails to x addresses. The thing is that it is always 2X the actual number. I'll probably just turn the feature off but I'd love to know what is going on. Can't believe I actually have any security issue(s)! Thank you!

    it only happens with OE and no other email client? In any case it seems a minor bug in the way traffic interpreted.Maybe PF uses local proxy to scan email
