  1. Hi! Does that mean anything or just gibberish?
    Thanks!

    It is the polite greeting in Arabic (used by Muslims).

    be careful it might be a spam or hacker. I had those a while back and I deleted every one of them!

    Hi Lisa [​IMG]

    Is there any message in the body of the email?

    I'd probably delete it, but that's just ultra-cautious me.

    ETA, if it has an attachment do not open it or respond in any way.

  6. Thanks! This is the third day in a row an email with that subject has gone to my spambox. I've been deleting them. I obviously don't speak Arabic, hahaha.
    From "[email protected]" --- sounds like more gibberish...
    Now if anyone ever says 'AS-SALAM ALAIKUM' to me, I'll know to say 'Hello' back.
