Hi
I was checking my mail this morning. I got a blank email that
seemed to come from my email address. To check it I hit reply
and it came back to me. I did not sent it and it does not show in my sent items. I run PC-cillin updated current and scan at least daily for viruses. Can somebody tell me how this could happen?

That would be a "test" spam. Someone is trying to get their spam together, and accidentally sent a blank email.

This could also be that someone else on your service provider has a virus. Email viruses sometimes send from a computer and use a random or "random-known" address as the "sender". You may not be infected, but someone else might be. As for the spam theory in the above thread and the "testing"... that is very possible to. Someone may just be testing their spammer.

Thanks Guys
I just have never had that happen before. All seems well
and my virus scans are showing no infection.
