mercury delivers empty mail messages

Dear all,

I have setup Mercury on a windows XP machine, which serves email from an 
email account to several different users.
The setup works fine, but from time to time, users receive empty mail 
messages, without sender address, subject or content.

For example (header taken from Outlook - domain name replaced by 
fakedomain.be):
Received: from spooler by fakedomain.be (Mercury/32 v4.01b); 21 Apr 2005 
15:06:31 +0200
X-Envelope-To: jan@fakedomain.be

Checking the log files reveals the following :

-in the systemlog.txt, it makes the following entry (note the <> means  no 
sender address) :
I 20050421 1506 MG004685 <>                             jan 
0

- I have enabled session logging for the pop3 server, this is what it says :
15:15:54.406: Connection from 10.0.1.28, Thu Apr 21 15:15:54 2005<lf>
15:15:54.406: << +OK <475736406.9445@fakedomain.be>, POP3 server 
ready.<cr><lf>
15:15:54.406: >> USER jan<cr><lf>
15:15:54.406: << +OK jan is known here.<cr><lf>
15:15:54.421: >> PASS jan<cr><lf>
15:15:54.421: << +OK Welcome! 1 messages (115 bytes)<cr><lf>
15:15:54.421: >> STAT<cr><lf>
15:15:54.421: << +OK 1 115<cr><lf>
15:15:56.421: >> RETR 1<cr><lf>
15:15:56.421: << +OK Here it comes...<cr><lf>
15:15:56.421: << Received: from spooler by fakedomain.be (Mercury/32 
v4.01b); 21 Apr 2005 15:06:31 +0200<cr><lf>
15:15:56.421: << X-Envelope-To: jan@fakedomain.be<cr><lf>
15:15:56.421: << .<cr><lf>
15:15:56.546: >> DELE 1<cr><lf>
15:15:56.546: << +OK Message deleted.<cr><lf>
15:15:56.546: >> QUIT<cr><lf>
15:15:56.546: << +OK fakedomain.be Server closing down.<cr><lf>
15:15:56.546: --- Connection closed normally at Thu Apr 21 15:15:56 
2005. ---

note that there are no lines between the     << X-Envelope-To: 
jan@fakedomain.be<cr><lf>
and the     << .<cr><lf>
while normally, it should show the rest of the mail header and the message.

- I did not yet enable session logging for the pop3 client at that time .. 
:-(

Anyone seen this problem yet ?
Am I missing any important mails ?

Thanks,

Gert
