Default Strange OE6 behaviour

I have noted lately that if I start OE on it's own It does not display
message bodies unless I go through the procedure of creating a new identity
and then reverting back to the original identity.

However, If I start it from inside IE6--ToolsMail and News Read Mail then
it behaves properly!
Any thoughts on what would explain this behaviour?
Regards
Patrick.

Default Strange OE6 behaviour

Does it work in the new identity? If so, import your messages and delete the
old identity.

I no longer use the Default Identity when I set up a new install of
MSOE. Before I set up any mail accounts in MSOE, I create a new
Identity. If this is a virgin install, with no uses set up, as yet, I
then declare the new Identity to be the default Identity, and I delete
the original Identity. If the original default Identity has been use, I
import all the messages, then delete the original default Identity.

I have just had too many default installation Identities go bad to trust
them.
