e-mails and rubbish text

I keep receiving e-mails with rubbish text, usually characters from Russian or Greek alphabet. Sometimes the senders address is similar, sometimes in English text.
Does anyone know what is causing this, are they likely to be spam, viruses etc. Since they are illegible I always delete them immediately.

If they aren't from people you know then its more than likely they are spam messages. You should delete them without opening them.

Make sure you have up-to-date AV software installed on your PC as many such messages are also known to be infected with some of the common virius.

Many Thanks - much as I suspected.
