There are a couple of ways, but try holding down command-control-shift 
and clicking on the field in the message box. You should get a 
contextual menu that allows you to inspect the field, which is named 
"message field".

I'm not exactly sure where Rev stores the message history. If it isn't 
in those properties, you might try deleting your preferences stack. 
That's in:
~/Library/Preferences/Runtime Revolution/Revolution 

Keep a copy, so if that isn't the problem you can put the old one back.

Me either, but try the above and keep us posted.
