I am running Outlook 2010.  Recently email from one person appears in my inbox with no text in the Message.  Attachments come through OK.  I can go on my mail server and see the text of the message, and I can see the message on my iPhone.

I don't have this problem with other people sending from the same domain.

Run Outlook  in safe mode - outlook.exe /safe.  Does it still occur?

Do you have Service Pack 2 installed and all Office updates?  If not install those.

Curious if you reply or forward the message is the text visible?

Have the one sender check his/her draft folder. I have had this problem before and it has to do with Outlook not updating the draft correctly. The sender having this issue should try "Ctrl/S" before emailing to update the draft copy and see if that corrects the problem. If it does, try reinstalling. It worked for me.

Nothing came close to addressing the situation.  They were off the shelfsuggestions that I had already tried.
