Outlook Express has’t yet downloaded this message.

I am using Outlook Express. I have some emails that I have already read, and now when I try opening them I get a message saying that  Outlook Express hasn’t downloaded this message yet. I tried to click on download but nothing happens. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Try the following

Go to Tools -> Options -> Read tab and Check  the option "Automatically download messages when viewing in the Preview Pane". Then reopen your Outlook express and try again.

If these messages are NEWSGROUP messages,  they might not be available for download anymore or they might not be marked for download. To fix this go to the Help menu and choose Contents -> Index. Go to the Index tab, then scroll down to ‘New Message’  and look over downloading
