    Try a Ctrl U on it (View Source) and scroll down from the headers and i
    suspect you will find it is not empty, just formatted in a way that your
    mail client cant understand and render.

    I've been getting a few of these lately, no message body at all. A cock up, or
    are they checking for valid addresses? Any point in spam-copping an empty
    message?

    I use Becky email client, that usually needs to use the browser to show any html
    messages, or I can right click & view source, but this is empty. No From or Date
    fields show up either.
