I sometimes receive an e-mail I would like to forward. However, this e-mail (received) has a list of 25/50 e-mail addresses. How can I remove these addresses before forwarding the text of the message.

This is how I do it...not saying if it's the quickest, but so far, it works for me, and if there is a better way, I'm all open.

Click on the forward, then I take the cursor down to the last address, click on that one and hold down the left mouse key..move it up so all are highlighted that I want to remove. When I get to the last one to remove (at the top) I hit the backspace or delete button...gone.
I think it works too if you highlight one and then use the shift/arrow up or down (whichever way you chose to go) It will highlight all then hit the delete key.
On the same note, if you get those emails where you have to go thru and keep opening file after file, or attachments...to get to the "meat" of the subject...if you want to forward that to someone, forward it from the last one that you opened, so the next person won't have to go thru all of that.
hope all this made some sense to you,
good luck

If your mail doesn't have BCC, You can send multiple emails as blind copies by typing one address in the 'To' field and the rest within parentheses, with a comma (no spaces) between addresses. (xxx,xxxx,xxx,) The address will show up to each person with their address only. You might want to pass this along to your friends, and ask them to use it. It helps keep spammers from grabbing a bunch of addresses for their own use. Hope this helps. Norma

Highlight the whole body of the e-mail, copy (ctrl+c), click "write," paste (ctrl+v) it to the blank e-mail, then highlight anything you want to remove - and delete.
