Default Email Problem after 4.0.4 Upgrade

Hey there. I have a Sprint Epic 4G Touch (Galaxy S2) and they just pushed my upgrade to ICS (android 4.0.4). It's awesome except now I am unable to view or read my work email.

I can send emails and get notifications of when I receive an email, but my inbox screen is pretty much all black, with none of the messages readable.

I have removed and re-added the account to the phone multiple times, to no avail.

Help me Android Forums, you're my only hope!

Ok, I know this is going to sound strange, but it has worked for many people. Go into the settings in the email app and change the font size. They should all show up after that.

Yup, just like KitsapAndroid said, change your font size to anything other than what is selected and you will have your email back.
I had the same Exact screen that you posted.

Once it is readable, you can change the font size back if you want.

I don't use the stock email app, but I would guess that when on the email clients home screen just press the menu button and look for settings or options or something similar. I just use gmail though, so I can't be precise for you.
