    I just ran across a coincidence that may shed some light on this problem. I've been having the iCloud rejected password problem for a few days (switched from MobileMe, now iCloud mail servers randomly reject my password in Apple Mail and iOS), and at the same time, I've had these blank emails appear in my inbox. I reset the password for my Apple ID, restarted mail on my iPhone, and the blank emails were replaced with emails to my mac.com address (same order in the combined inbox amongst mail from my other accounts). This does not give me a feeling of warmth and security.

    Thanks for the post- Receiving no content/no sender messages for first time; held home and power button simultaneously and everything back to normal !

    I reset my passwork for iCloud, shut off my phone and restarted it. Checked email and all of the no subject emails are gone. Thanks for the info!

    I Agree with iPhonequeen

     

    Just turn off phone and turn back on, that's what did it for me.

    We are now almost into July 2012 and still in spite of this problem having been posted back in 2010 the problem exists! Still driving me nuts (OK - so I'm a bit of a neat freak and don't like even my iPhone messy) How come Apple after two years has not been able to correct this problem?

         Apple doesn't care about an issue that affects .001% of its customer base and is nearly impossible to reproduce. This issue is an anomaly. There are several fixes posted in this discussion and most of them do work.

    And I did indeed try the one re settings>quit account> etc., etc., and it did work. I just feel that if it is a bug that with their large stores of expertise they should have been able to correct it without having to go through the ritual. As it is I have a huge problem with my MacMail and which I have posted on several times but cannot find a solution to and so I live with. Problem being that I have to quit and reopen Mail several times a day in order to be certain that all of my mail is showing. Not "get mail" that does not do the trick, but actually quit. When I reopen, as many as ten or more emails pop up sometimes from as far back as two days. It is not AOL or GMail or Yahoo all of whom I have accounts with, as it happens with all of them. I work from home a lot and before realising what was going on I missed many an important and time sensitive email that I needed to address. I have tried all the fixes suggested and nothing has worked, so I just gave up and quit>reopen at least three times a day. Sigh...

    Saddest part is that I am still a die hard Mac user and won't ever be going back to Windows in spite of all the issues I have.

    Cheers

    I have had the same problem as nearly everyone else in this thread. I tried forcing the mail app closed, rebooting, etc. The quickest and surest fix for me was to show the No Sender / No Subject message, press Edit, and then select Mark as Unread. It disappears and does not reappear.

    Same problem here. Since yesterday these emails keep pouring in, "no sender" dated 1970. Rebooted phone and all fake emails were gone. Quick fix!

    I have started receiving these messages as well over the last few days.  When those messages are in my inbox, my phone seems to act strange i.e. read messages remain marked as unread, message counter doesn't change, to name a couple.  Yes, powering off removes the messages but it doesnt fix the problem as the messages keep coming.  after a quick scan of this thread, am i correct to assume that there is no fix for this?
