I receive large quantities of jokes from friends.
I would like to forward them on, but at the beginning of each line there is a "double indentation mark" looks like this >>>>>>>>>>
I believe I am receiving the joke in Plain Text, is this the reason these marks are at the beginning of each line.???????
When I forward the joke on, I remove all these >>>>>>>and forward it on as HTML.
What do these marks mean and is there a simple way to clean up the email before forwarding it on, rather than deleting each mark. Sometimes a joke has as many as 40-50 lines.
Sometimes the jokes have been forwarded on from other people to my friends., so the >>>>>could have originated at that time.
I hope I am making myself clear, as this is very new to me.
Many thanks.
My appreciation for such quick past replies.

You need a third-party program such as:

StripMail, freeware.
You don't say what Operating System, but it works from Windows 98 to XP.

-OR-
eCleaner 2.02, freeware. Works from Windows 95 to 2000 (never tried it on XP, seems like it should work)

To answer your question, it would not matter how you receive the joke, as plain text or HTML, they can still show up. Depending what client you use for email, you can make sure that you don't add to the mess by adjusting your settings.
