    Blank Email Body on some Sent Mail - Windows Vista

    When sending or forwarding emails to (3) of my many contact, using Windows
    mail and I have Vista as my operating system, in the last month these
    contacts who's providers are all three different ISP's have started getting
    the following in the body of their emails with nothing else? Has anyone
    else experienced this problem... Help?

    That is a very rare symptom. I believe you are only the 9th person to
    report this problem in the 16 months I've been active here.
    We don't know what the cause is, or how to fix it. You can try
    upgrading to Windows Live Mail:

    Go to Tools, Options, Receipts. Select "Never send a read receipt".

    I had my options set to notify me when a read receipt was requested and I did
    not receive this notification with these emails. Do you believe this was
    still the problem?

    In the meantime, I downloaded Windows Live Mail. I ended up with two email
    accounts, one Comcast (larrybecker1) (Default Account) and the other
    comcast.net. All properties are identical except the server port numbers and
    security. The first has default numbers of 25 for SMTP and 110 for POP3
    without requiring a secure connection. The second one has 587 for SMTP and
    995 for SSL and requires a secure connection. Should I delete the latter
    account?

    I don't know what was causing the blank replies, if it wasn't some part
    of the 'read receipt function. You did well to move on to Windows Live
    Mail. As for your two Comcast accounts, it sounds like neither has the
    correct settings. Comcast has shifted from port 25 to port 587 for SMTP,
    but their POP server is still on port 110 (no SSL), not port 995.
    The complete settings are documented here:
