Many Outlook users were complaining about receiving blank emails in Outlook. Looking for a solution I found threads about Outlook sending empty email, or the message sent is empty and does not have any body. It is just weird that you compose a whole message and what the receivers get is a blank message body. So, here I found a solution for Outlook Keeps Sending Blank emails error.
