    Same issue here - I have multiple accounts.

    What works for me:

    - go out of the "unified" mailbox
    - go to the individual inbox of the/an account
    - go back to the unified mailbox

    voila, mails displayed correctly
    (I have threaded display "off" in case this would have impact)

    I had the same problem since updating to iOS4. I have spoken to Apple support they have talked me through just about everything. The only thing that works is either to delete and reset your email account or restart the phone. However if you go into your Me trash folder and collect mail all the messages and headers appear. Wish they would at least acknowledge there is a problem then get on and fix it.

    here is a new articel by Ted Landau in Macworld.com

    A new Apple support article describes a possible problem with messages received in the Mail app on an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4. What happens is that an email is listed but its content is missing. All that remains is a brief non-helpful explanation: “This message has no content.”

    Apple offers a simple fix for this symptom: Quit the Mail app from the multitask bar.

    Click the Home button to exit the Mail app.
    Double-click the Home button to bring up the multitask bar listing currently “open” apps.
    Locate the Mail app icon in the multitask bar. Tap and hold the icon until the red minus sign appears.
    Tap the red minus. The Mail icon will vanish. You have now completely quit the Mail app.
    Double-click the Home button to exit the multitask bar. When you next launch Mail, the missing message text should appear.

    it has worked for me and i hope that it helps you...

    OMG I could hug you! I have also been having this problem with my 3GS after I upgraded to the ios4 and it's been driving me crazy! I had no clue you could "close" the opened apps. As soon as I did that and re-entered my email it pulled up a draft email that had been sitting there for almost 2 weeks! I think that was my problem. Can't wait to see if this fixes it for me.

    Thanks for the post Josh! You're a life saver!

    Thanks! This worked for me, too. Whew! Relief to know it wasn't a virus. That was my first thought. the only thing I've done different today was to use the voice recorder, and leave it open in case I needed it again. Maybe that open app triggered it.

    Very very easy fix for this. Close mail from multitasking. I'm using an iPod ouch so make sure you close anything mail related. Then reopen it.

    I had this issue today for the first time. Made sure mail wasn't running in the background reopened it and the 69 mail bug turned out to be an email from a company I do business with.

    If anyone else need help try that
  • pdante Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I need help! I have had this 12/31/00 email for over a week and have tried EVERYTHING except restoring the phone as new. it will not go away. any ideas will greatly be appreciated, and like I said, I have tried everything discussed on this and every other board and NOTHING works! emails will not go away
  • SparkyGirl1012 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I got 24 of these "no sender, no subject
    12/31/69" emails today!! I have gotten them before, and like everyone else, i couldn't delete them, but they went away by themselves. The difference this time is there are so many of them and the rest of my legitimate emails have no content when I open them. It'
    s like there is a hacker and he or she is putting feelers out to do damage. Help us Apple!!

    There is no "multitasking bar" on the 3G with iOS4. How do I quit the Mail app?

    Can anyone supply a link to the "new Apple support article".
  • Josh Bleibtreu Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    here is a excerpt from the article... and a link to it also... good luck and i hope that it helps you...

    As Apple's tech note goes on to say, this procedure is not relevant for an iPhone 3G or an iPod touch (2nd generation), even if they’re running iOS 4, because these devices do not support multitasking. The fix will also not apply to older iOS devices, as they cannot run any variation of iOS 4. For these devices, at least for the Mail bug, Apple’s recommended work-around is to power off your device and restart it.

    Re; No Sender No Subject email error

    What worked for me was deleting the Game Apps that my Son downloaded and then doing a restart.

    Don't know why the these particular Apps were doing it, don't care. This worked.

    Same issue here. Going to the root folder (like looking in Sent) and then returning to Inbox does take care of the problem temporarily. Hope 4.1 fixes this!
  • sadiqqq@yahoo.com Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    This is v easy to fix, just open the multitasking bar, delete the e mail icon from multitasking by tapping the red-minus, close multitasking, and open e mail again, those "no sender no subject" e mails would be gone
  • bzq Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I've been having this problems several times a day for months. Sometimes the "No message=no content" message is there and sometimes it isn't. I've always believed it occurred when I delete e-mail from my account on my Mac vs. the iPhone. The iPhone shows I have a message though it was never "told" that the e-mail had been previously deleted, so when it searches for something it "thinks" should be there but isn't, the "no content" message pops up. It's not perfect, but it's something. When I sync the phone to my Mac the messages usually disappear.

    I am having the same problem with AOL emails. I can only get rid of the "no sender" messages when I sync my iOS4 with my home computer. My nerd son-in-law says it is because I use AOL and should switch to gmail. I was glad to find gmail users were having the same problem. I hope it get corrected soon.
