I get almost no spam in my Mobile Me mail account (nor from my Gmail account, either). The spam filters on Mobile Me and Gmail are very good, so I only get a few spam messages a month. Recently, however, I have begun receiving email messages that have no sender, no subject, and no body. These have been arriving at the rate of about one per day.

I took a look at the raw source of the messages (View / Message / Raw Source from the Menu Bar) and determined that the message does in fact include spam content. I'm not sure why it is showing up as completely blank, but somehow it is making it past the Mobile Me mail spam filters.

I don't think these messages are harmful in any way, just annoying. The best tactic here is to just delete them.
