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:
