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.

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.
