User's Inbox flooding with blank emails from Exchange. What is causing it?

I have a user that is getting her Inbox flooded with blank emails from Exchange. There is nothing in the header so I would believe it's coming from Exchange. It also is not going through our spam device so it has to be coming from Exchange. The email is blank. It comes with a 64 or so byte attachment that is empty as well. If anybody has heard of this or experienced before, I would appreciate any direction they can give.

Thanks.

If you are referring to Queues under Administrative Groups-Domain-Server-Servername, they are all empty.

What version of Outlook? Do you have any 3rd party plugins?

Trend Micro. Reading that article, it doesn't look like what it's describing. It's almost like spam from Exchange. Like 50 in less than a minute.

They should be showing up in your queues if they were from Exchange.

I don't see it in Message Tracking so it possibly is an Outlook issue. I have a hard time believing it's our AV as everybody has Outlook 07 SP 1 installed and the same AV with same build/pattern versions, but I'll look into it.

Try disabling it for a minute. Or disable the email checking. If you google it, there are tons of results.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the AV. So far the problem hasn't come back. Thanks for the help.
