I use LiSA (Liquid Information Speaking Assistant) on my Powerbook G4. This program gives me an audio announcement of incoming emails with a human voice, and also gives a notification box (mini LiSA)showing the first 8 characters of the of the sender's address. "Mini LiSa" always shows the last incoming email address, even if the email has been deleted from my Apple Mail or .Mac account. I recently noticed a "mini LiSA" showing an incoming email within the previous hour with an address beginning =?ISO-88... However, there was no email associated with it that I could find in my account. This has never happened before. I've been plagued for the last couple of months with what appear to be phishing attempts in the form of emails with random addresses and attachments which I do not open. When bounced, they usually come back to me as "Failed Delivery". Could the two be linked? Can someone send an information gathering program through an email that does not actually show up as an email?

iso8859-1 (and -8, etc) is a name of a common font used which will display most English and Latin American letters. But, it doesn't sound like something that should appear in an e-mail.
