    I have been getting a crop of blank email having no subject or body.  They appear to come from spoofed addresses (looks like an earthlink source for example).  POPFile v0.22.3 keeps marking them unclassified.  I use only two buckets (ok and spam).  Is there any way to improve catching these type of emails as spam?  Thanks!

      Unless you get a lot of wanted messages that are similar just classify them as spam, POPFile will learn quickly if you tell it what to do.

      I've discovered that I get a blank e-mail, with no subject or body, each time my e-mail virus scan (CA eTrust EZ AntiVirus) crashes on an incoming message.  Lately this has happened about once per week.  From the symptoms, it looks pretty obvious that the virus scan utility is responsible in this case.

      Win XP SP1
      EZ AntiVirus 7.0.6.7
      POPfile 0.22.3
