I am frequently getting the envelope and then a blank space in the from column and then the time of the message in outlook express.  Then there is no message.  What might be causing this?  How do I remove this nuisance?  Thanks,

    Greetings, capreol !

    If you haven't already done it, shutdown and restart Windows.  This sometimes fixes the

    If you still have a problem then try Start > Run and type regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

    If that doesn't help, then see if the fix in this article applies:
       OLEXP: Message Appears Blank and Has an ATT000XX.txt or ATT000XX.htm Attachment

    If that doesn't help, then in Internet Explorer, select View, Encoding and uncheck
    Auto-Select and choose instead "Western European (ISO)".  Then try reading your messages.

    If the problem is only with HTML messages, and you have OE6 with SP1, go to Tools,
    Options, Read and uncheck Read All Messages in Plain Text.


    Best wishes!

    I think this is just poorly produced SPAM.  I get these all the time.  Some SPAMMERS are so dumb that they can't even properly configure their SPAM-blaster.  So you get junk like this.
