My son sent a letter to me for approval before he sends it to the addressee.  He asked me to edit and then print it on my computer because my printer is better, and then he would come and pick up the letter.  Lips Sealed

I made the necessary changes but when I when I tried to copy the revised letter, it shows up with the email information (to, from, etc.) at the top.  I don't know how to delete that. Huh?

So then I highlighted just the written body of the letter and tried to open in Microsoft Word.  But when it opens there, it is all a bunch of gooley guk....MIME....letters and symbols. Shocked

Am I doing something wrong?

Hmmm that sounds odd ..  Huh?

Should open with no problems....

1. position your cursor in the body of the email (using your mouse, move into the body and click).

2. Click Ctrl+a (press the ctrl key and the a key at the same time) - this should highlight the whole email

3. Click Ctrl+c (this copies everything that's highlighted into your clipboard).

4. Open a blank Word document.

5. Click Ctrl+v - you should know have the text of the email in your document.

If you want your email in there as an icon, and you're using Outlook, you can just drag the email from your inbox into the word document, and you'll find a little envelope icon in your document, which you can open just by double clicking.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for replying to my problem, Cactus.  I did press Ctrl +a and Ctrl +c and it highlighted all,   Kiss but Ctrl +v didn't do anything.  Undecided

This is, - see blue below... basically, what I see when I try to read the copy & pasted letter that I sent from my original email. When the letter first arrived, I forwarded it to myself so that I could work on it and edit and change a few things...then I copied the revised letter and sent it to (pasted) Microsoft Word, where I expected the exact same revised letter to show up.  Instead....this is what it appears like...I am just sending you a few lines, but the whole letter is like this...and I have no idea why it didn't copy as I wanted.  If you have any ideas, please let me know.  Thanks.  Gere
