Messages without From or To, only subject shows

Hi,

First: Poptray is a great product. And generally it works fine for me.

However, since a while I see messages with an empty From and empty To field in the list. You can see what I mean on this screenshot.

When I look at the raw source of those messages, I can't see what the problem is with the From or To fields; they are present, and not malformed or something like that. So I don't see the problem.

As you can see, it doesn't happen with all messages. But still quite frequently. It also happens on different computers, with different email accounts. It would be *very* convenient if this would be fixed!

Thanks,

Raymond

More than likely they are simply spam emails.. spammers use several methods to try to get past spam filters and this is one of them. Its also possible that the original email simply had gotten corrupted, but this is less likely.

Thanks for your reply.

No, those emails are never from spammers. They are perfectly legal emails.
