    weird MAPI email

    I've been gettin a weird Email from...well myself. I know i havent sent it but its from my email address. I dont think its a worm because as far as i know, no one else in my address book has got it and it has nothing attatched, or even anything in the message part. Its just a blank email with the subject.... MAPIWhoAmI. Below is a copy of the message source and u can see the MAPIWhoAmI deal. Anyone have a clue on what this is and why its happening? I'm using a pop3 account from our ISP Verizon. I know that MAPI is "Messaging Application Programming Interface" so that kinda leaves me to believe that a program from my computer may be sending this? or maybe just a simple bug or even lame virus that is just annoying? I searched on google and nothing on MAPIWhoAmI comes up. Any ideas???

    If you can please copy/past it here so we can take a look. Or you can take a look yourself. Especialy look for the Received: headers. If it seems to originate from 127.0.0.1 you're the one that's sending them.

    You may be right about mapi and a program sending the email. Could be anything though. Installed any new software lately?

    There is the message source...nothing about an IP. Kinda weird though i guess...just seems weird that it would do that, nothing on google whatsoever about it.
