Dear user
Usually, it's the spam or virus emails that are causing stripped by a zealous anti-virus or anti-spam software.
To avoid them, simply configure your anti-virus software to a less severe email scanning level.
Other than this you can also refer to the following link on Microsoft community discussing similar threat as below:

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_outlook-mso_other/sent-emails-showing-up-blank-in-the-outbox-after/ab93fbe5-51ab-4a0f-bc56-68a01fe39dfc

As it is suggested in one of the comments that may be due to  Outlook profile corruption then you can try to reconstruct a new Outlook profile, by the suggested method in the link.

Thanks & Regards

Is this Exchange?

Try two things:

1. A new Outlook Profile. Close Outlook, go to Control Panel Mail, Delete the Outlook Profile (deletes the Account). Restart, remake the Outlook Profile and test.

2. Make a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account, set up Outlook and test.

Try a different computer to see if the problem computer has something wrong with the Operating System, OR, if the email itself is a problem.

Hi

I have the problem on 2 different users and 2 different computers.

We had an update for our Vipre anti-virus just before this starts happening.  We are just testing both in safe mode.

Thanks Terry

It may be the AV you use blocking the email. Try disabling or uninstalling the AV on one computer to test.

Also look in the Email settings for Vipre.
