e-mail arrives without a sender:

  Alan Ryan 16:25 06 Nov 03

Received an e-mail today with subject, "in reply to your enquiry" : the sender's identity was left blank. When I tried to add the message to my blocked senders list, OE informed me that the "selected sender could not be added to your blocked senders list".
Is this an e-mail scamster who has devised a way of resisting attempts to block his message(s) ?

Probably - just delete it.

I have deleted it; but I was surprised to find it impossible to block the sender. I was under the impression that ANY sender could be added to the blocked list without OE altering your decision.

Some spammers are able to send email without any sender details. When you to try to block the sender - your system says 'sorry can't do - as there isn't one'.

Thanks for your response: I didn't realise it is possible to send e-mails without having some identity of the sender included (even if it's a false one).

I have had some like those in my account and my friend got a virus as they sent him a attchment about a prize (very silly of him ofcouse!). Just block them or delete them when it comes!
