Saw a couple of oddly written subject lines, everytime one was clicked on, shit froze up...deleted them and it seems to be working well again.

Yes, "denial of service message", inside is a URL made of %XX pieces that other people said trips up the regex parser. As far as I can tell, it is a new exploit. It freezes when I click on them, so it is not possible for me to delete them. I wait for a new message so it does not open them when I click the inbox.

That was it, what you can do, what worked for me was shift+click the message below and above it then delete them.
