Weird emails with only numbers spoofed to self



Has anyone else been getting emails that only contain numbers (just 3
or 4) in the subject and body??
the weird thing is the from address is the same as the destination
address ie spoofed.
Several users at work got these messages today, and while i am sure the
users dont have a virus, its hard to convince them of that when i cant
explain the source or reason for the email.
My brother also got one today on his @froggy.com.au address.
maybe something to do with 6/6/06 but what??? mysterious



below is the message source (i have removed most of the email address
to prevent spam & inserted --)
he has AVg free antivirus which has made entries into the source
