Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Blank email body

Thanks to those who offered solutions thus far, none have worked.
The problem: When I download emails, SOME of them have a blank body, or no apparent attachments, notably those coming from Yahoo addresses, but not them alone. If I look in properties/ details/ message source, I can see the missing text, but if there was an attachment, say a .jpg file, it displays in properties as ascii code, it does not decode. Any more suggestions, turning off the firewall and virus scanner does nothing any different! I'm (nearly) ready to tear my hair out.
I runXP Pro SP3 (problem the same with SP1/ SP2), and Outlook Express 6.

If you click on the arrow to the right of the NEW tab, on the contacts screen, you get a drop down menu. chose "email Message", it should bring up a blank email with no email address. I just did it to be sure and it works for me. If you hit the Email tab, you will get a blank screen with the highlighted name in the "TO" line.

How do I stop getting blank emails?

What operating system you use and where are you getting the blank emails from?
Look at the address as who sent it to you.
You may be sending it to yourself by mistake.

Are you using Yahoo, google or what e-mail system?

For me the problem was with a Philips DVD player. I Googled the make, model and "wrong region code" and got some solutions. Try this approach. Some websites offer to sell you a solution; hopefully, you should be able to avoid this!

Outlook 2000 Sends Blank Messages Automatically

i am assuming you have anti virus software but if not you should get the free version of AVG.

I also recommend downloading MalwareBytes and also doing a scan with that... Malwarebytes is an excellent spyware cleaner that finds many problems other dont.

Email is blank (white screen only) when opening from HTC Diamond

I had the same problem and in my case it was due to needing to register the Chinese language software (CE star) on the phone. after registering properly screen displays normally. If you have this software (or a similar language encoding software) I think registering or removing the software may be a fix. Good luck.
