Did that email come from a genuine source ?

Can you ask the sender what type of email is it and what font he used ?

Can you ask the sender to send a similar email and see if that would do the same ?


Meanwhile, Try detect and repair going to help menu and also Repair PST

to see if these would help

Nabilakhan,

Not sure if this program would help : http://www.eldblom.dk/path/

Does outlook give any error message while crashing ?

What happens if you open outlook in safe mode and then attempt to read that email
Start --> run --> outlook.exe /safe

Easy solution - switch it to view all email in plain text format
I know that option is there but I can't find it right now on my OL2002.

Also, you may want to play with preview settings along with using Word to view and edit messages.
