CFPop, Spam, BCC, and a java.lang.NullPointerException

A couple questions regarding CFPop:

We have a script that scans a few email boxes throughout the day.  These boxes will occasionally receive a spam email that is completely blank...no subject, to, from, date, etc.  Problem is when CFPop tries to retrieve one of these it generates this error: "java.lang.NullPointerException".  I've tried adjusting our spam filters to keep these emails out to no avail.  I'm trying to find a way for CF to just delete these things and move on but need some help.  Suggestions?

Second...I'd like to use CFPop to scan mail for BCC addresses but that is not an available return column for CFPop.  Does anyone know if CFPop returns BCC in its CC return column?

Thanks!

on your mailserver do you have settings for filtering?
like "blank sender" or "not in directory"

second - no - you do not have any access to bcc - that's the whole point to bcc

did this work for you?
if not, what mailserver are you using?

Well I answered half the question - that should be worth half the points (the bcc inquiry)

As far as the rest goes - who knows ...
the poster didn't repond with an answer as to if he has a blank sender filter on his/her mailserver.

I'm sorry.  Got side-tracked on another project and completely forgot about this question.  Yes, I have filtering on the server but somehow some of these messages still sip through.  We did a thorough overhaul of our anti-spam settings and these incidents have decreased a lot.

Thanks for your response, though.  Points are yours.
