This may be an extension of the same problem I am having with e-Sword 
and that is you have to use a native copy of riched20.dll.  Might I 
suggest getting a copy of this and placing it in the same directory as 
the Mozy software installs to.  Then use winecfg to create an entry for 
the main executable and then under libraries set riched20.dll to be 
native then builtin.  See if this makes the text visible.
