E-mail oddity

    Frodo Lives to hit it!

    Several times I have gotten an E-mail with no sender, it is blank, and no subject, around 544b size. Anyone know what this is?

    Steve Is that it, then?

    It's a virus. The content was blocked either at your ISP or at your AV software. The e-mail gets through, but the payload is stripped away.

    The blank sender, subject, and content are tricks the virus uses to mask its true origins.

    You are safe. Some poor sap with your e-mail address is not.
