      Corrupt email ???

      Hi,
      This has me stumped only happened twice so far but had emails ONLY! from Sky email account where they are corrupt.. happened on 28th last month and today, done virus scan, add ware scan nothing found..

      I receive the email OK close outlook down next time I rerun outlook the last email has become corrupt, but only with me sky emails have 2 other email accounts and they fine when receive emails no corruption..

      Thought it was a virus but nod32 and ad-aware say system clean so anyone got an idea ???

      Only thing is its only sky email and nothing else on the computer can't work out why..

      Thanks hope you can help..

      Maybe the .pst file for that account is damaged? Are you using IMAP or POP?
