Hi:

Someone here wrote a two page email in Outlook 2000, and sent it to about 12 recipients.  But the body of the message was blank after it was sent.

Any idea how this could have happened?

Thanks

Hi taborrg,

I found something related in http://www.kbalertz.com/kb_924610.aspx
The body text of the e-mail message disappears when you add an attachment by using the Attachments.Add method in Outlook 2000

There's a workaround

Greetings, taborrg !

Does the problem occur repeatedly?  Or is this a once time occurance?

If you are not adding an attachment, it could be a MS Word issue. Disable MS Word as editor in the Mail Format option.

Best wishes!

Greetings, taborrg.

Is the body actually missing, or might it just be invisible?  You can check this by saving the message as a text file and then looking at it with Notepad.
