Outlook 2010 email body blank but shows up in OWA and on iPhone, primarily on email responses / forwards from Blackberry mobile devices

We have a Windows Server 2008 for Small Business serving 4 users using Windows XP Pro on 1 workstation and Windows 7 Pro on the remaining 3.  We have 1 iPhone and 1 iPad syncing to the Exchange server and are using MS Outlook on all 4 workstations.  Two of the workstations are Office 2007 and two are Office 2010.  We have noticed that, on several emails, the body of the email does not show up in Outlook 2010 (have not yet tested it on other versions but will and will post back here the results) but it does show up on OWA and on both of the iDock devices.  Additionally, if we do a view-source on the Outlook message, the text is there, it's just not showing up.

Does the text show on the Outlook 2007 clients?

I haven't been able to test this yet but will post back here shortly when I am able to confirm (that it does or does not).

Just opened the same mailbox in Windows XP + Outlook 2007 and was still not able to see the text.  I do see the 'Sent from Blackberry on AT&T', but not the content that *should be* just above it.  The content does show in OWA and on the iPhone and iPad.

if you look at the source, does it show as a "multipart" message?  Can you past the source here (edit out real addresses and confidential content)?

This question was not answered and the issue has gone away on it's own (e.g., hasn't happened for some time)
