I am having a problem with messages in Outlook 2000. Messages are arriving with part of the text garbled. (A few sentences in the middle and sometimes at the end).

The problem is not on the other end - this was tested. (i.e.: signed up for newspaper updates - on home pc it works fine and on office pc, parts of the message contain garbled text).

Anyone have any ideas of what could be happening here? It is happening randomly with just about every client on the network (about 20 users - NT network). There is no rhyme or reason regarding the types of messages this is happening with or with the sender of the message.

Thanks

Could be video related. Note your settings for your monitor (so you can set them back to the default). Modify one at a time (setting it back and changing another) to see if this resolves. I've seen issues like this with Compaq hardware.

Hi Pamela

If this is a network wide, random occurrence it sounds like the sort of thing a virus might cause.
I would suggest the Network Administrator does a full system Virus Scan to eliminate this possibility.
I must admit it doesn't sound like any virus I've read about but better to check anyway.
