Can't read emails in Outlook Express

I have 2 identities with separate email addresses on my pc. I can send and receive emails, but I can't read the emails that I have received. I get the "From" and "Subject" in the top half of Outlook Express, but I do not get the body of the email in the bottom half of Outlook Express. However, I can read the emails if I receive them in Microsoft Outlook.

I have checked the "view" in Outlook Express and all the settings look fine. I have tried creating a new Identity to ensure that it is not a corrupt identity causing the problem. Neither of these have resolved the problem.

I have already run, AVG 7.0 Professional, Cleanup 4.0, Ad-aware SE, CWShredder, Spybot S & D 1.4, Ewido Security Suite, Trend Housecall, TDS-3, and Bazooka. All to no avail, the problem still persists.

It has been suggested to me that I may have a "denial of service attack". Does anyone know anything about this attack, or do you have any other ideas as to what my problem may be.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Try this : Outlook Express > Tools > Options > Maintenance

Click the Clean Up Now button.

Click on Browse and select the folder with the problem, then click the Reset button.

The messages will then be reloaded from the server.
