I'm using Outlook 2003 setup for POP3 email.  Its been working fine until yesterday, when the same 2 messages keep getting delivered to my inbox.

They have no subject or sender, the file size is 668 bytes, and the body of the message just says =20.

Here are the headers:
Received: by zorn (mbox mhooper)
 (with Cubic Circle's cucipop (v1.31 1998/05/13) Wed Nov  3 11:24:18 2004)
X-From_: Account Number:________________  To Account
Number:______________________ =20


How do I permanently delete these messages?

Scanned for virus/spyware?  Tried forcing the Blocker or creating rules for this?  Cleared old sent items and nothing int he Inbox?  Checked for updates to office from http://www.officeupdate.com?  Might try SAFE MODE without networking to clear if still not successful.

Can you check with the Email provider for whom you've got the Pop3 account to see why it's not being cleared from the webmail or server site?  Could be a problem there.

I solved the problem by using mail2web ... finding the original messages there, and deleting them there.
Thanks for the advice.

Glad you got it fixed. I was about to suggest you to go and check using webmail..

No subject or sender and body of the message being that =20 , means it is some kind of spam or email with virus.

make sure to check your outlook and scan for any virus after updating the virus definitions of ur anti-virus.

if the problem  continues , try deleting the email account tht you had created in outlook and create it again to see if that solves the issue..

I found out what caused the problem ... it was actually from signing up for "Bill Pay" from a local bank; the bank sent a bill pay confirmation email, which included regular text, but also paragraphs broken up by =20, then a whole bunch of HTML code at the bottom.  There were also 3 other messages with just the =20.  It doesn't make sense.

No objections here either.

Happy the solution was found.

Just wanted to add for you, stevekalu; that I hope you've confirmed its legitimacy... given all the 'spoofing' and so on going around the world with online banking.
