Outlook Express and mails with blank subjects and sernders address

Once in a while I get emails with no subject and the senders field is also blank.

If I use ms outlook, I can get access to all my emails.
For those of my users using outlook express, I've noticed that they can download mail until it reaches the message with the blank address and sender field.

Once it reaches that message, it stops and does not download anything futher.

It happens to all my outlook express users who have to pull down messages with blank addresses and subjects.

Any ideas?

Messages from spammers, probably verifying that the address is valid - or not.

If it is a big problem for you then you will need to look at putting some of filtering software in front of Exchange to stop these messages from being delivered.
