Re^2: Most of the email spam I get is:by hostyle (Scribe)

Messages with an enigmatic or vague subject line (that looks like a Markov chain or random dictionary words) and no content -- absolutely nothing in the body at all, no HTML part, no attachment, no nothing. I seem to get a fair amount of this, and I'm confused as to what possible reason the spammers could have for sending it.
Testing if its a valid email address? If it doesn't bounce your email address gets added to the "alive" list.
