Mail Sends Blank Message Body

  • Recipients receive only subject and no message in body.

  • Is this with all messages you send? If not, what are you sending in the body? Is it HTML or plain text? Are you attaching anything?

    Is this with all recipients? What mail client are the recipients using?

    In "All Messages/Sent", select a problem sent message. Is the body blank there too? If you right-click the message and choose "view all headers and message", do you see the body content there?

    What version of Opera are you using?

    What mail service are you using?

    Do you have anti-virus with an email scanner? If so, check to see if the email scanner is messing with things (by turning off the email scanner).

  • Happens with all sent messages whether composed or forwarded to any recipient. Doesn't matter what's in body. Tried plain text only and html only. Sent folder messages are blank. Header content will view. Body content won't. Opera 12.16. Gmail and Yahoo servers. No email scanner.

  • Thanks for the clarifications.

    Launch Opera on the command line with -pd "path to folder on your desktop". Set up mail in there really quick and see if it works fine there. If so, it's probably something in ~/.opera (like operaprefs.ini or most likely the "mail" folder).

    You can also check the database. Sometimes it can fix things.
