I have a Exchange 2010 SP1 with users using different versions of MS Outlook client.

In this particular situation I have user using Outlook XP connecting to Exchange 2010.
Some of the emails that she receives are missing body content. It is basically email with the subject and blank body.
When you try to read this email with Outlook OWA client it shows the body content.
I thought that it may be a corrupt Outlook profile so I created new one, but the issue remains the same.

Outlook XP/2002? Are you sure?
Outlook XP doesn't support cached mode and isn't supported for connecting to Exchange 2010 (even though you can connect it).
Outlook XP is extremely slow and unresponsive against Exchange 2010...

might be a good idea to upgade that user to office 2007 or 2010  then.

Try outlook /safe to rule out any 3rd party add-ins etc. causing the body to go missing.

i agree but it might be time to get those machines upgraded to take advantage of the features Exchange 2010 offers end-clients, which is why i mentioned content filtering at the end-user level like AV, they sometimes install add-ins in the outlook client to monitor emails... what meganuk3 recommended is good...

As it seems Outlook XP works with Exchange 2010 only "on the part time basis" - upgrading to Outlook 2003 resolved the issue.
