vanishing email text!! pleeease help

  boybrown 18:05 11 Nov 2004

Hi folks,

I posted this a while ago but noone was able to help.

I use OE for my email account. When I open OE all seems fine and normally I have a preview pane open to see the content of e-mails. OE keeps on spontaneously removing all the content and all I am left with is a blank e-mail and all stuff has gone! I then have to re-boot in order to get OE to let me view any e-mail content.

As I said the e-mails open but all text has dissapeared!

I would be really grateful to anyone that could come up with ideas?

I run Office XP

It's best to disable preview pane as viewing an email in it plonks any nasties it contains on yourHD. Is it poss that you have some security device/setting wiping it or if you're not topped up with AV updates you should update your AV and do a scan for what may have already installed iitself. To see what's inside an email r click it and then click properties and select the details tab.

It's a bit of a long shot, but I've experienced disappearing text when I've tried to paste some text into an email I was constructing and it just disappeared. I found that it was being pasted as white text on a white background. After reselecting the text and changing its colour to normal, i.e. black text on a white background, everything was okay.

Try selecing where you think the text in the message should be and change its colour.

HI folks,

Got it sorted. Interestingly it was because I had setup a ram drive and when it gets full it blanks the e-mail content!
