Windows 7: Windows 7 Live Mail

Windows 7 Live Mail

I use a pop server and lately been receiving quite a bit of junk mail.
This junk mail may be in my inbox or junk mail box but all have something in common.
They are all addressed to me, have a header, have a subject but has no text nor attachments.
Only 3 evenly vertically spaced small boxes that can not be opened nor show any properties are present.
My safety option is set to high and real mail is NOT read as junk.
Not a big problem but just curious if my server may be doing this or a personal setting I've overlooked.
Sorry but I already got rid of 6 junks before posting this so will send a screenshot later.
Thank you for you consideration.

On unwanted e-mails that get into my inbox, there is an option to show images.

See this from one of mine.

Thanks but my boxes are ALWAYS just 3 of them with no 'X' in them and are not jpg images.
Left click won't open them and right click displays no options at all.
It's weird and in all my years never encountered this type email action. Luckily just minor inconvenience.

When I get an e-mail like this, I block the sender's domain in WLM. When our ISP changed e-mail providers a couple of years ago, the amount of SPAM and phishing literally exploded in volume. I was even getting junk e-mails from myself. I just kept reporting each occurrence to my ISP. It took several months before they got a handle on who was intercepting the e-mail traffic from the new provider.

Thanks for the replies. I do block senders and domains but haven't reported to my ISP. I'll try that.
Here is that screenshot I promised:
Windows 7 Live Mail-screenhunter_18-nov.-29-13.56.jpg
The only option with those squares is Select All and it highlights the whole text page.
There are 4 more greyed out options that can't be accessed:
Copy, Save Picture As..., Save Hi-Res Version... and Save Background As...also Select All mentioned up.

I see it was seen by my AVG but disabling that does not affect what's happening.
Thanks again.

Is your ISP providing the e-mail service or are they outsourcing it to another provider? It sort of looks like that e-mail was spoofed, but I'm not sure. The return path is different from the sender.

All service is provided by Bright House Networks. The details mentions Adobe.com but the ip address
89.184.82.11 is s3predictlabs7.com in Ukraine. Very fishy (phishy). This is getting more interesting.

Yes, most interesting. My ISP is a locally owned cable company, but they outsourced their e-mail to TuCows, so even though my e-mail address is the local cable company, mail is flowing through a TuCows server(s) somewhere. If you didn't know it, you wouldn't suspect it.
