Outlook Express doesn't actually download the entire message when it updates with the server...it only fetches the email headers. There may be a very strange problem with your mail server whereby it removes the message from the server when Outlook Express fetches the header (the server may think it is getting the entire message..) You could try to leave a copy of the message on the server (set under the account properties dialog box)
Make sure your e-mail account is set up as a mail account and not a news account. Outlook express has a setting to delete message bodies of read news messages.
Also, see the attached picture for another method of troubleshooting.

I was hoping that someone had a solution to this problem.
I have had to start using a different email app just to be able to read my incoming mail.

This has happened in my environment also, you need to change preview setting and check view with auto-reply I think and then it will start showing.

Plus I have tried everything stated in the orginal post.
"I've un-installed and re-installed Outlook Express several times..., and everytime a message comes in, the body is blank, either in the preview pane, or even when I open up the message to view it. All else with the message is fine."
There must be a file somewhere that is corrupted. I even deleted the Inbox.dbx file hoping that when it got recreated the problem would be solved. It wasn't.
Does anyone have any other ideas?

By the way, does anybody know how to get an adware (at least I think it is adware) "advanced search" toolbar line off of my toolbar area. It has colored boxes with the topics "Hot Spots", "Pharmacy", "Gambling", etc...Please let me know if you do. (I have tried "toolbars", under the view option and it does not seem to help) Thanks for any help.

Start, then Run: regsvr32 inetcomm.dll
I've also found that the PC's that have this problem also cant print from IE just prints blank pages.Also oyher things line not opening older 16bit programs or missing autoexec.nt file. I wonder if its some sort of virus thats causeing all this.

I don't know what I deleted, but now I can't get OE to show any of my newgroup messages. The message is there as I can go to the message properties and see the text in the message source.
Any ideas anyone?

Temp & Tmp values had changed to a % sign. So we changed the value to c:\temp for Temp and tmp and all was well again.

Start, then Run: regsvr32 inetcomm.dll
It worked like a charm!! I re-started Outlook Express and the body of the email messages re-appeared. Thank you so much.

I read everyone's messages/suggestions on the same problem and none of them are working!! I did the "run" suggestion w/ regsvr32 inetcomm.dll and I even deleted all of my folders under Outlook Express (so all my emails went bye bye!) but none of these are helping. Anyone else have anything else??

When you view messages in Outlook Express 5.x, the body of the message may be blank and the message may contain an attachment named ATT000XX.txt or ATT000XX.htm. If you use Outlook Express 6.0, the body of the message is blank and there is no attachment.
To resolve this behavior, clear the Temp and Temporary Internet folders:
1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
2. On the General tab, click Delete Files, click OK, and then click OK again.
3. In Windows Explorer, click to expand the hard disk letter, click to expand Windows, and then click to expand Temp.
4. Select all of the files, and then on the File menu, click Delete.
5. Click Yes.

Did you accidentally delete your temporary directory (set in TEMP and TMP)?

Any other suggestions? Anyone having this "once-off" problem? I am running McAfee Virus protection - I thought that might be the problem?

After further research you need to deleted all of the information out of the C:\Documents and Settings\
Just fill in your username in the < >
Something similar was recommended above but that was with a temp folder not associated to the specific username. Outlook Express uses the temp folder in which XP is currently logged in to.

Close down every program your not using
Open your internet browser
delete files (OK)
then select OK at the bottom
It will dissappear off the screen
Go to Start
Select your hard drive (usually C drive)
Documents and Settings
Your User folder (It may be your name)
Then delete everything in the temp file. I had 99903 files so it took ages, and there were 2 files it simply wouldn't let me delete.
However after I persevered and then went back into Outlook Express it was back to normal. Hope this helps. Alan

I know what will solve the problem: the next time I format and reinstall the system.

I had other symptoms also. Skype errored with "Out of Resource memory" Visual FoxPro Exceptioned Errored when trying to modify a Report Form. All using Arial Bold.
Solution in my case was to copy Arialbd.ttf from another computer.

After trying all the fixes suggested in this thread without success I found the following finally worked for me. I edited the Environment variables (accessed via 'My Computer@ - R Click - Properties) and changed the location for temp and tmp from the location in c:\Documents and Settings... Local Settings\ to c:\temp. Bingo! (without re-booting). Good luck.

What happens when you send it to yourself? Is the background color the same as the foreground?
