Can the situation be "corrected" so that I can read the archived messages for which this occurs? I'm using Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254 on Windows XP Professional Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254 : Service Pack 2). I send my email from the current version of the Windows Live Hotmail site. It appears that this scrubbing phenomenon is stable; I've never experienced a case where I could read a message one time but another time it was scrubbed. I can read most messages, but if one has been scrubbed, then it appears that way each time I click on it.

I think it would help if you gave an actual example. Could you post the URL you were clicking on?
