I get this email frequently from System Administrator (its spoofed) with the following subjects

YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT IS SUSPENDED FOR SECURITY REASONS
Email Account Suspension
*WARNING* Your Email Account Will Be Closed
SECURITY MEASURES
+ a few other subject lines

They are all abt 36KB-39KB in size and the email
It comes from   mx.smtp.la.psi.net ([38.144.99.233])   but the from address is internal... It is coming from the webmaster account.

The attachment in most cases is "information.zip"  ... i can't open the email
There is a MS Outlook dialog box that says
"Can't open this item. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object. See the folder contact or your system administrator"

I want to know how to stop these emails...
I am using Symantec Mail Security + GFI Mail Essentials. Exchange Server is 2003 -- MS Outlook is 2003 as well.

Thanks
