    I'm getting quite a few of those lately.
    No sender no nothing. Plain blank.

    Anybody with similar or same issues?

    I have been receiving 4-6 0f these daily... very strange. Clicking on long headers reveals some info that really is useful.

    This APPEARS TO BE SPAM and the best thing to do is to delete them immediately!

    There is a suggestion that these come from a spammer trying to validate an email address. See: http://www.ehmac.ca/anything-mac/3291-i-keep-getting-these-blank-emails-what.html

    From the Apple Discussion Boards: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1925198&tstart=0

    There is a suggestion to set up a rule to move them to junk (personally I don't like this, I shouldn't have to set up rules to deal with spam/system errors). This Apple thread also seems to confirm that it's MobileMe related.

    Not really much of an answer...

    It's not just a problem with MobileMe.

    I have seen a few of these at my work address. Those are getting past MXLogic's spam filtering.

    A friend of mine contacted Apple recently and was told that the messages don't begin as blank. They are actually spam that has had their data filtered out before they arrive to your inbox. He said the messages should be harmless and that you should go ahead & delete them. Apple is working on a fix that will prevent them from arriving to our inboxes.
