ATT00007.txt email attachment - virus?

Hello,

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.

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.
