    Body of text disappears in Reply

    For some emails, when I Reply or Forward, the subject line is retained but
    the text in the body of the email disappears. The only way I can get it back
    is to select and copy the text in the original email, then paste it into my
    Reply or Forward email. This doesn't happen for all emails. My settings are
    'Reply to messgaes using the format in which they were sent.

    I have seen this with some messages originating from Exchange
    Server. For example, the first response to a support request to MS
    often exhibits this behaviour, so it's something configured by the
    sender of the message you're replying to. Someone more knowledgeable
    will have to explain how it's done. It's a useful feature if (a)
    you're a big organization with a large volume of mail, (b) it's a
    long message, (c) you're expecting a reply, and (d) you can readily
    find the message being replied to via a reference in the Subject
    line. Imagine how much time would otherwise be spent scrolling down
    through pages and pages of included replies to find the latest one
    if each message is several pages long and they are all chained
    together.

    If you select Plain text as your e-mail sending format in Options,
    the whole text will probably appear in the Reply window.
