Windows 7: Outlook 2007 not downloading message bodies automatically

Outlook 2007 not downloading message bodies automatically

Hi Everyone,

I am having an issue with messages not automatically showing up in Outlook. I use Outlook 2007 (with all relevant Service Packs, and updates), and whenever I look at my emails now I see the following message instead of the "message content".

When I click on "Download the rest of this message now" I can see the message, after an inconvenient delay, however I would like to revert back to my old settings so that I can avoid this time wasting step.

I have followed the link below in an attempt to fix this issue -

How to Download Only the Headers for Large Messages in Outlook - About Email

What I am finding is that my settings in Outlook are correct, the option to "Download the rest of this message now", is not ticked for any of my mailbox folders.

I anticipate that there could be an incorrect registry entry, or perhaps a recent update has caused this strange behaviour.

At any rate I am at a loss, and any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,


My System SpecsSystem Spec
