Nice idea.

That could help curb spammers. There's a reason to kill off such a send.

OE may have a hook in it from an antivirus or other.

If you are using "their" AV "they" could have it wired to stop spammers.

I dropped a hint that it's one of a spammer's trick to get email out.

Does your Outlook Express address book have your own email address in it? If not, is OE's message filters set up to reject emails from anyone not included in your address book?
