Hi Bruce: Not getting that one here on my Dell Optiplex windows10 machine
with latest WindowEyes and using IE11 and Outlook.
The things I get flagged from Brighthouse, my IP are usually from overseas
and obvious spam.
I am not getting unwarranted attachments but I do know some e-mail providers
will attach something like an image or whatever and Yahoo e-lists were doing
that and may still be doing that - not sure.
Is there any safe way to open one of the attachments without endangering
your machine if it was sent by a bad guy.
 Perhaps a virtual machine or something?
Are they all coming from a single list or are you getting them from several
lists?
Are they from a Yahoo e-list?
If from the WindowEyes list there should be no attachments as far as I know,
at least I don't get any. 
Good luck and do the virus check thingy perhaps with Windows Defender if you
don't have anything else before spinning up too many tests.

Subject: Spam and virus Emails?

Hi Everyone,

    I was informed from a person on the social Windoweyes list that the
company has been sold again to another company.
I am posting this email because lately on a daily basis I am receiving email
after email that my email provider says that there are attached viruses. 
It is getting to the point I may have to get rid of my email address and
wondering if anyone on this list is experiencing the same thing?

    It is nice to have a list to post to, but I suspect that our emails may
have to be clocked, not posted, and a secondary email used to communicate
via the Windoweyes web page. In other words, like Facebook, any
communication done is sent to that third party address then forwarded to
your Inbox, thus preventing direct access to your email account. GMail has
the same feature, forwarding emails...

    Maybe there is no way to correct this since no matter the path, they
still end up at your end. But luckily my provider has a spam/virus flag
feature for all customers and labels suspicious mail and instead of sending
it, just gives the email address of the sender and what the issue is, Virus,
spam, document...
Then gives you the option of allow or delete.
The sad part, I receive up to 4 or more a day now.

        Bruce
