My problem is, that sometimes when I am in the middle of typing an email, either in mid-sentence or finishing a sentence, some of the email will delete itself automatically. The deleting can be anywhere from a sentence to almost the entire email. What am I doing wrong? Is there a setting that I need to configure or is my email spazzing out on me? It happens in various email accounts, Yahoo, my school based email. A few friends have told me that they are having the same problem as I. I know for a fact it is not virus/spyware/ad/malware related. Thanks for the help.

Hey there ModelGeek :)

What email program are you using?
Does it happen when you click back and try to add something else in?

Is it possible that you are inadvertently hitting the "insert" key?

Plus, sometimes you may accidentally hit a shortcut key combo that will activate a function to do exactly what is happening. See if there is a way in Options/Preferences to disable shortcut keys and see if problem repeats.

Johanna, no, I know I am not hitting the "insert" key. Matty, it doesnt matter what email program I use. Ive had my friends log onto their various accounts, Hotmail, Gmail, AOL, various school based email accounts, it still happens. I personally use Yahoo and my school based email.
