I Just changed the days to keep history and was looking for settings that would enable me to sign on to my outlook email account from other locations.
Yes I did make sure that the curser was in the body. I tried this many times, shut down the pc and restarted it, I tried everything I could think of.
This is a work pc, our IT person is on vacation and have no one to help resolve the issue.

OK, it doesn't sound like settings, unless,

as Kenone mentions, the font color has been set to white. - If the cursor moves as you type, but you don't see anything, this may be the case.

If the cursor simply will not move... I'm out of ideas.

I can type in the email address and the subject but not the body? Our IT person is gone for 2 weeks and have no one to help figure this out. I can type in all other programs it is just in emails where the problem is.

This is Outlook 2003

I only changed how long to retain history but was really looking to see where I would make a change to allow myself to sign on to my outlook email account at different pc's on the network and have the messages follow. At present they do not appear.
Yes I can type in all other programs. When sending an email I can key the address and the subject line but it will not allow me to key in the body. I key a message and it is blank. I've tried shutting down and restarting the pc and it does not work. I'm going to go to another workstation and see if it is affecting only this pc.
