If you download mailwasher a free utility it shows you your e-mails on the server before they have been downloaded to your computer you can then pinpouint any suspicious ones and delete before they are downloaded to your computer click here

In Outlook Express 5 you need to go to the View menu then click on Layout...


Clear the checkbox next to Show Preview Pane.


This will make the preview pane disappear and then you will have to double click on each e-mail to open it. It also means that you can highlight the e-mail and delete it if you want.


Hope this helps


regards
