Outlook XP not forwarding message body


When users forward an email the mail gets delivered with just the subject line. The body of the message does not appear in the forwarded mail.

This issue only crops up now and again and the way I get around it is to Uninstall Office and reinstall it.

Is there an easier way to solve this issue and how does this problem occur in the first place.

Thanks for the points.
But any particluar reason why i received a [Grade: C] ?

IF it was not the answer that you was hunting for, you could have
posted here, and I would have tried to assist further.

Usually when you Grade someone a "C" is when you run out of options.
And you just want to award the person that assisted you most, with something.

My Apologies

I am fairly new to this experts exchange site and didn’t realize that some much value is placed on the grading of an answer.

Sorry if you take offence to this but the answer just seem like a normal, everyday answer that I would of tried myself further down the line so when it came to grade, out of the 3 options 'average' seemed the most fitting.

Thank you for pointing out the common understanding of a C grading to the folks at EE. Like I said, I am still new to this environment and any information like that is much appreciated as it helps me in the future when I post and accept answers.

When Grading these are the best steps to go by:

Grade A:   Give this Grade for Working Information, Or to be nice for extreme extensive help.

Grade B:   Give this for something like the question here. A simple, Should have found on your own type of answer. Which we are seem to post them every once in a while.

Grade C: Is the Lowest Grade. This is basically like receive an F on a School Spelling Test.

You can also ask EE in the Community Support, to change the Grade to another Grade.
As we all hate to receive F's :-)

  No offense taken, before I posted my reply here, I checked your Profile out.
And figured that you probably was not sure about the grading.
Usually if you give someone a Grade C: EE Pops up a Dialog (or) page that ask :
Are you sure that you want to Give a Grade C.
I take it, you never saw this window?

Take Care
