When looking at email, the adrs and subject are displayed but the email body is missing?

When I open an email on my home pc the from, to, and subject lines are visible but the actual email line is blank. Does anyone have any ideas on what settings need to be changed to fix the problem.

    The message is there. Your PC and/or Yahoo Mail are causing this trouble. Lets see if

    we can fix it. Follow all my steps. But do one at a time.

    First. Yahoo All-New Mail? Is that what you are using?

    If so Clear your browsers cashe.

    In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

    On the General tab, under Browsing history, click Delete.

    Click Delete files, and then click Yes.

    Click Close, and then click OK.


    You did that right? Now Completely re-Download all your messages. Every one of them.

    Wait until they are downloaded. Don`t hurry. Hows that?


    Well try this. = 2. In the new Yahoo! Mail, you don’t do this with your browser anymore.

    Now, just change your

    character encoding setting right in Yahoo! Mail!

    Here’s how:

    In the toolbar, click More Actions and select Set Encodings.

    From the list that appears, select the encoding that matches the message’s content.

    Note: Only one character encoding set may be viewed at a time. And in this case,

    changing your

    browser’s encoding setting will not work. Hows that?


    Still can`t get it? Try Classic Mail at the top of your page. (Don`t worry you can return)

    Hows that?


    Now you are in Classic Mail Right? Messages all there?

    If not try this. = Select any email where the header information is displayed, but there is

    nothing in the

    "body" of the message where you would expect to find text, etc.

    Move your mouse to the area of the expected "body" of the message and right-click...on

    the menu that appears, click on "Encoding"...on the menu that appears, if "Auto Select"

    has a check mark, leave it as is...if not click "Auto Select"; then this menu will

    disappear...right click again in the "body" to cause the same menu to display again...then

    click on "Western European (Windows)"...you should now be able to view the "body" of

    all messages that you couldn't view before...obviously, if the problem somehow occurs

    again, do the same procedure described above again. I have no idea how or why these

    settings get "changed" or "corrupted" after everyday use, but apparently they sometimes


    Hows that?


    Ok PC has problems then. Update your operating system, Browser, Shockwave Flash ,

    Java. Everything. Get all patches. The whole works. Also try Firefox browser.

    Note in Classic Yahoo Mail in a pinch try this. =

    Put message in Print Copy. Then read it. OR

    Click Reply on Message to read it. Then backbutton out. OR

    Put message in Excel or Wordpad to read it. OR Forward to another working email

    confident i might i do in contrast to getting Blamed for something i did no longer do ! yet as curiously such as you knew what you probably did ? So be courageous and examine it , in the event that they are incorrect then you definately nail them to the door physique
