So I use Outlook Express while at work to check my personal e-mail. It was working fine the other day, then all of a sudden, messages stopped displaying in the display field. Everything seems to work fine other than that. I can send mail fine and such, and the messages still come into the inbox, but when I click on a message in the inbox to view and read it, it doesn't display. If I put my cursor in the message display box, I get the hourglass, like the program is trying to open it. If I double click the message subject, the message will open in it's own window, but still no message body, and I get the hourglass. The same thing happens if I go into newsgroups. Odd thing in the newsgroups, though, is that I can double click to open the message in it's own window and I get the same blank window and hourglass, but if I then click on the Forward button the message will then be displayed in the new forward window as quoted text. I tried this for messages in my Inbox, but it doesn't work. In some cases, the original e-mail message will show up as an attached .txt file that I can click on and then I can read/view the e-mail via WordPad. This doesn't happen for every message, though. Any ideas here? Has this happened to anybody else? Help!
Not using Word for my e-mail editor. I don't think I can do a restore back to when I wasn't having problems, either. I'm at work and just using OE to check my personal e-mail here in the office, so I'm on a LAN. I'm sure I'd have to have LAN Admin privileges to be able to download any programs or run any backups. I submitted a trouble ticket to the LAN admins, but haven't heard back, more than likely because someone's personal e-mail on Outlook Express is not a pressing matter for them to work on.
Gees. Was the guy just embarrased or did he get mortally wounded. Well, looks like Robby was stabbed in the heart. Told you these things were sharp. And for just 21.99 you too can be stabbed while banging on tables.
