Hum the header parts are missing - strange : from that two things could be happening :

1) something is going wrong on the server

2) The emails get's corrupted when we deal with it :
  i)   Are you suing POP or imap ?
  ii)  What happens if you right click on the folder -> Properties -> Rebuild index ?
  iii) How large is your folder on disk , locate your profile and inside you'll find a copy of your folders, click on one that has the issue and choose property and repport it's size here.

If that's unclear leave a comment here and we'll clarify ;-)
