Messages don't show in Outlook Express

By computers ·
I have a customer with an XP Home computer who has a problem I have never seen before. In Outlook Express, all of the emails appear to be blank. The folders containing the messages do seem to hold data, and the computer seems to be virus-free. Any suggestions as to what could be causing this?

I finally managed to solve this issue. It seems that the problem was that the Sent Mail folder was 425 MB, and the computer just couldn't manage it any longer. I made a copy of the folder to save the contents, deleted it, and created a new one, and everything seems okay now.
