Hi, This is an intermittent error that occurs when the user uses "Reply" or "Reply All". Not sending a new message.

The error appears when the user clicks "Send" and when the user clicks ok to acknowledge the error, the message apppears to be sent ok but does not appear in the sent messages. The message is not received by the intended recipient and the message body is lost, causing the user to retype and resend the message.

I have set up error logging within Outlook and it does not even log the attempted send of the message or show the error at all.

This could happen if the users email profile is corrupt. Did you try to create a new profile to see if it happens there as well?

contorl panel->mail->show profiles->add

Hi,

Thanks. I will try this out to see if any further errors occur. As I say, it is intermittent so it may be a number of days before I can decide if your solution has proved successful.

Thanks again
