message was received blank, the content disappeared

(I posted this on Exchange group, but i feel it may be useful to post
it in here as well)

Dear all,

Here is the weird situation-

Users A, B and C are all from the same company, one of my clients.
This morning, A sent an email to both B and C - B received it okay,
but C received it with a blank message body.
Both B and C are laptop users using Outlook 2003 cache mode, they were
both out of the office at the moment.
I used OWA to check all 3 users mailboxes
- A did send the message with something in the content
- B did receive the message with the correct content
- C did receive the message, BUT the content is blank

C used to mention that he configured his Outlook 2003 as "Download
headers only", because he always works with a very slow internet
connection and this setting gives effeciency. Maybe this setting is
the culprit? Well, i am not sure, it is only a setting within
not Exchange though.
(Tools | Options | Mail Setup | Send/Receive | Edit | "Download
headers only")

The server is Exchange 2003 SP2.

The same problem happened to C a few times in the past. It was even
much stranger a few weeks ago -
User A sent an email to C in the morning, C saw the content in
pane. But the message content became blank when C opened it up in the

Any thoughts?
I am Really curious on the answer behind this mistery.

Thanks a lot

No message rules?

Reject messages with custom message?
A policy has dictated an account of a former employee respond to all incoming email messages with a custom note and not allow the messages to accumulate in the mailbox.

Outlook message rules for sent message from me.
Greetings, There has always been a message rule I wanted, and never asked about. So now I will. I default a copy of all my send messages to the sent folder. They are marked at read... which is good, because if I send the message, I obviously read it. <grin> At times, I wish I could send the message to other folders. Example. I have a folder called "family". If I send a message to "family", I'd like to be able to put a copy in the "family" folder. I know you could do this, but the message is not marked as read. Thus, the folder is bolded/...

Users Disappearing From Projects
Project Server 2007 SP2 w/Dec CU. We have seen a scenario in our EPM environments where users will occasionally disppear from project teams. We know that changing user security with workspace synchronization enabled could remove users from workspaces but this appears to remove users from the team of project themselves. We checked the queue and nobody was making changes to 2 separate projects yet several users (it appears at random) were removed completely from the project from one day to the next and needed to be added back.

Futher, in my Queue directory, I see no .EML files that correspond with any of these stuck emails. Anyone know what the problem is here? ...
