Quick Mail Question

I get a lot of blank messages in my inbox (ie. no from, no subject, no body, etc.). Every time I get one, I mark it as Junk, but it hasn't seemed to learn yet. I tried to set up a filter in the "Rules" tab in preferences, but it wouldn't let me save the rule with blank fields. Any thoughts on filtering these blanks?

Mine has never learned those seemingly completely blank ones... :(

Luckily only a couple finds their way to my inbox each week...

Edit: Actually, I'm considering retraining Mail's spam filter. I'm not sure today's spam is not quite the same as when I trained mine a couple of years ago... Now, do I want ~100 spam messages a day for a little while on the off chance that the filter gets better...? Hmm...
