Very odd email

I use Thunderbird so can view without opening. Just received an email with no sender, no subject, just the date sometime in 1970.
Viewing message source brought up a blank page too.
Of course I binned the item, but I am curious how the sender managed to hide the information.
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Very odd email

If it was sent in 1970 then the software you are trying to use to decode the message will be too advanced to read it. Try downloading the message from the server using COBALT on an IBM T22 mainframe. Avoid using anything except copper wires to relay the mail.

Cry I've only got  a little house and it'd be a tad overcrowded. Grin I meant 1997 or somwhere like that.
