I had the same email. I've no idea what it is I just deleted it. I too would like to know what it was. My Norton Anti virus didn't detect anything untoward so I presume its ok

Is that the title, the name of the attachment or the contents of the e-mail?

Don't give it a second thought, you do not recognise the source, delete it, it could be harmless but do not take the risk.

Your notification of your National Lottery win will be clearly identified so there is no danger on deleting that one by mistake!!!

Had it as well - it comes from

Don't worry, I didn't open it...:-)

Never use the Preview Pane (in OE), highlight the e-mail once, clock Properties, Details tab and then, if there is a message, Message Tab.

You can then read it without opening it. I usually copy and paste porn e-mail messages sent via Tiscali into a Send Message panel and forward to its abuse section.

However, this came via Pipex and mentions Whirlwind Systems in the Details tab as well as dennisnet.
