I use Eudora with Earthlink as my inernet provider.  Some (but not all) of my email recipients tell me that when then receive my mail, it comes with a 0KB attchment called ATT00007.txt.  Is this a sign of a virus?  Where does this file come from?

I've Googled the net using the filename, and it comes up a lot - indicating that it's common - but not in any context that explains what it is.

Thank you.

BTw it is used for formating the email in exchange, etc.  If use pop3 which you probably do just ignore it!!

I have seen that kind of text message occur when a virus was stripped or some sort of content was denied.  I think you are safe.
