Strip characters (like >) from email messages
« on: Nov 15, 2007, 10:38:01 AM »
Quote from: Jim in General Discussion/TIPS ON PUMPING GAS--GOOD INFO!
I removed the ">" from the front of each line.  Those indicate a forwarded email.  When posting those here, please take the time to remove them.

A nifty little program is available, that cleans up e-mails in a heartbeat. I've had it for a number of years, & it sure comes in handy when I want to forward "clean" e-mail or post something without having to manually remove the "internet style quote marks". The downloadable file isn't very heavy (256 kb), is compatible with all Windows operating systems, & is easy to use. :ThumbUp:
It's called Stripmail & it's FREE! :yesssss: 
 

Quote from:  from the website:
Stripmail is a small utility for cleaning characters like > from the beginning of lines of e-mail messages. it also reformats text separated by blank lines into paragraphs. Just copy/paste the original text into stripmail, clean it and copy/paste back into your message.
Stripmail does not contain any adware or spyware.

Try it... you'll love it! :wink5:
