I have 1 user complaining that when he types a plain text email the letters are stripped or just don't appear for half his typed message.  Hes checked his keyboard and can type just fine with no issues on Notepad, MS Word, Excel and online typing in Google search etc.. but within Outlook replying and creating new emails half the letters in words/sentences are gone looking like this"

I had a situation where a user swore his keyboard was "possessed". When testing he would type very deliberately and have no problems; but during normal use would get random spacing... when I observed him using his keyboard and mouse I noticed every time he reached for the mouse his stomach would press against the spacebar on the keyboard.

The only reason I mention that is typically when users are testing something they are very deliberate with their keystrokes... have you tried swapping keyboards?

I've also seen dropped characters with wireless keyboards when the batteries get low.

Once you've determined it's not hardware related try setting the Text Encoding to UTF-8 ...
