MYSTERY N0-MESSAGE IN MY SPAM FILTER

Over the last few days, I 've noticed a recurrence
of something in my spam filter of blank return address
and no subject.

I dunno if its safe to open or not; odd.
No attachments were indicated in it.

@OmSigDAVID,

if it goes straight to the spam folder, assume it was sent with bad intentions and delete it w/o opening...

YES; I 've been doing that. Call me paranoid.
I check and clean my spam filter ofen, because good stuff
gets trapped in there.
I have even gotten trapped in my own spam filter,
even tho I m in my own addressbook

It keeps happening (no attachment indicated).
It happened again, just now.

I wonder what 's going on.

@OmSigDAVID,
Lawyers in particular are being targeted - it's a new botnet scam; if you just do what Region said you'll be fine. Also read this:

Thank u, High Seas. It asks for an "optional" secondary email address; I only have one email address.
I keep getting rejected.

@OmSigDAVID,
Try entering the same address twice - if that doesn't work, come back and post details here. There are some really bigger problems out there:
