Thank you. I already know it is some sort of spam. I turned off the junk
filter when I first started using Windows Mail because Avira has a spam
filter and I want to test that and don't need both of them. I thought I
turned off Phishing also because, again, Avira MailGuard has that also but
maybe I didn't turn it off. I had already tried reading it from Properties
as I don't like opening spam and letting the spammers know the email address
is "live" but when I looked at it from Properties, like so much spam, it
just looked like gobbledygook. If I actually open it, I'm not sure if it
will display anything readable because I read ALL email (even Microsoft
Newsletters) in Plain text.
