For some reason lately, I seem to be getting a lot of blank messages in Outlook Express. No subject, no message, no address, no nothing. Just a blank message. They usually come in groups of 5 or 6 at a time, and seem to come rather randomly. Is this some new spamming scheme? Does anyone know what's going on?

Where do they come from? You must have an address? Look in the message's properties to see the details, like IP addresses.

So, you're saying that when you right-click on Properties, nothing at all appears? Weird!

Absolutely nothing. Yeah, that's what I thought :) I was just wondering if there was anyone else who had this odd phenomena or if Cyberspace is just picking on me, which I wouldn't be surprised if it was... :)

I think there are paranormal activities going on with your computer. :) You should see a priest. Is your computer screen turning around by itself in a 360° angle? :) Perhaps someone is attempting to communicate with you from beyond... :)

Haha...I've done some quick research, and found some suggestion that full temp files could be causing it, which doesn't make any sense considering I ran ATF cleaner just the other day... :)

Or you could contact your ISP. They might have a clue.

You can try putting a cross on it to ward off evil spirits.
I do that with equipment I work on that has "unexplained". My customers get a kick out of it.
