Why do Outlook Express messages appear blank and have an ATT000XX.txt or an ATT000XX.htm attachment?

When you view messages in Outlook Express 5.x, the body of the message may be blank and the message may contain an attachment named ATT000XX.txt or ATT000XX.htm. If you use Outlook Express 6.0, the body of the message is blank and there is no attachment. The solution is to clear the cache and temporary internet files.
