This was an example. The same happens with .txt, .gif, .html etc. And 
diskspace is not an issue. The only common thing I have been able to find is 
that all the messages are multipart/alternative.

Yes I run antivirus (clamav and AVP5), but they have never deleted infected 
files before and these programs have not been upgraded.
