I dont think I've changed anything, but when I get into Outlook Express... I can recieve emails. I can see who they're from, what time and all that.  So, when I click on it to view the actual message, it just sits there and waits.  I could sit there for hours on the same email and it will never show me the email.  I know for a fact that it is still sending the message, because I can see it in the message source.  How can I make it show up?

Have you done a virus and spyware scan?  It sounds like something is interfering with the operation of OE.

You don't say which OS.  Try to run SFC and see if that comes up with any corrupt or missing system files.
Upgrading your version of IE/OE may help also.
Have you verified that all patches have been applied from Windows Update?
