No content in message field anymore

For the last two days when I open my email client I see no content in the 
message field.  Each email is blank with an attachment paperclip in the upper 
right hand corner. When I click the paperclip I have the choice of a txt file 
(which will not open up) or an htm file which will open.  This is driving me 
crazy and I don't want to get rid of windows mail...any suggestions on how to 
fix this?

Which antivirus are you running? Some of them cause problems with
Windows Mail over time.

Your AVG antivirus was probably installed with its default install =
option,
which installs an email scanning module. Just disabling its email =
scanning
is not a sufficient remedy. Uninstall AVG, then reinstall, but select =
'custom'=20
install, which then allows you to unselect installing its troublesome =
email=20
scanning module. This will prevent future data corruption.

You still would need to run the WMUtil repair utility in order to =
correct
existing data corruption.

automatic addresses in to:,cc: and bcc: fields, how to edit, delete, etc.
I don't know what it is called, but when you go to enter the names in the To, CC, and BCC in Outlook they automatically pop up. Very nice option. For example, when I go to write Tara Lewis. I write Tara and it finds the rest and pops/fills in the field. Well, this name is in a list somewhere. Where is this list, what is it called? And this list is not the same as "contacts." I'm trying to find out how to delete, edit, change, add in this list. For example. My friend Brian has two entries. One correct and one incorrect, spelled Brain. So when I write B - R it puts u...

Outlook refuses some message and deletes them....mystery..

email attatchment containing original message

I solved this problem on my machine by the simple expedient of rebooting! Before rebooting, I had deleted all cookies, temporary internet files and files in windows/temp, as this was suggested in response to another posting (evidently this helped similar problems in Outlook Express). This latter did nothing, but the reboot did. You might have to do both. Deleting temporary internet files and cookies is done in I...

Hotmail deletes messages in Outlook
It seems that it is the intention of Outlook is to mirror Hotmail. I deleted my messages in Hotmail to cleanup the account thinking that these messages were safe in Outlook. Upon returning to Outlook, after deleting the Hotmail messages online, my Outlook messages were also deleted, including the Archive file. Is this the correct behavior of the products (connector/Outlook/hotmail)? May I assume that all is lost? Is there a way to modify this behavior in the future, such that the messages in Outlook are safe from operations performed in Hotmail. I am just interested in downloadin...

all messages are deleted

View messages by Message Timeline

The question is that from time to time a bar of varying length appears over some of the messages and I'm not sure what it means. At fires I thought it had something to do with the number of message threads but some of the messages with few threads had longer bars than the ones with a good number of threads.

Exchange Defrag/Slow message delivery
Hello all! We've been running into a minor issue that we've decided to take a look at. When someone sends an e-mail to the entire company, it can take up to 5 minutes for some recipients to receive the message.

I checked the Application Event logs and found that the online defragmentation for the Private Information Store has never completed. I'm seeing Event ID 704 entries stating that the Online Defragmentation was interrupted and terminated. This has been occuring every day going back to 1/...
