Outlook 2003 email body text missing?

Posted on 2009-07-07

In outlook 2003, the emails coming through, from any email address, are blank in the body of the email, yet if there is a link in the email it will still show, the "TO" and "From" are still correct, and if you highlight the body the text appears, however this is not a very good way to check emails.
I have reinstalled office, deleted normal.dot and all the other little things i can think of.

Any ideas :)

Is this on all emails, or emails from one specific user?

As it sounds like someone has sent an email using White text

It happens on emails from various people, but not every email from them. EG Person A sends an email and it has the issue, Person sends email again and it is fine, Person B sends an email and it is fine then the next day Person B sends an email and it has the issue. If the same person sends the email to another address it is fine.

Might just check that SP3 is installed as I think this is fixed in the latest SP.

Otherwise, see the below KB and Hot Fix on blank Email body in 2003

Its your font has changed seen this problem before.
TOOLS-->Options-->Mail Format-->Fonts

On message fonts make sure they are all black or colour of your desire.

Hi guys figured it out, found out it was the settings for plain text emails, it was set to white, yet rich-text and html where normal, obviously couseing the confusion.

Thanks guys
