    Im running Windows XP with every update installed and using IE6 as well. Suddenly, out of no where, outlook express no longer is able to display the body of the message. I can see all my email, subject and sender, but nothing in the body. This is the same for Sent Mail, Old, New, Deleted. I can even compose and send mail out just fine, but when i try to read it from "Sent Mail" nothing is displayed. So i even tried to just save an email as a file. Then i open the file with notepad and i can see it, but when i try to view it with outlook express, nada. Another thing is when i run my mouse cursor over the area where the body of the message is supposed to be, the pointer turns in a waiting hourglass.

    Could also try this if all else fails........ since it can't hurt the
    system. Re-register inetcomm.dll by going to the Start/Run line and typing:
    regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

    'Saves having to edit registry'

    Let us know how you go on !?
