Peculiar new type of spam, what gives?


Recommended Posts

The past week has seen a very peculiar type of spam surfacing at my gmail (my dedicated spam catcher account) email.

no links or ad of any type. No attachments, nada. Simply a one word subject and a one word text inside the email. get 2 or 3 an hour of these... always forged info (addy) etc... so it is spam..but.???

only one clue is this: Each email has a text inside (perhaps it's gmail's inputting it?) that says "7 bit encoding".

anyone have a clue?

One of the reports is as pasted directly for examination and clarification:
