    Hello everybody.
    I just want to report that in some cases, there are spam messages arriving to my MS Outlook with no headers. No From, To, Received, neither the SpamAssassin ones, nothing, zero headers! They are quite small (<20 KB) and the SpamAssassin is set to scan mails up to 200 KB.

    Those mails are actually forwards from catch-all settings and account filters set to forward spam to a spam trap, but the 10% of the incoming trapped spam is arriving with no headers. what may be causing this?

    You've viewed the full header and are certain there is absolutely no header information? Could Outlook itself be stripping the information? Do you have it set to leave a copy of the machine where you can view the source message before it arrived in Outlook?
