    hello all...
    a pretty superficial problem, i know, but occassionally when i receive an email on my 'outlook express' (5.5) it is in the form of a 'forward', and sometimes these forwards have been forwarded from ten, or so, other people. Is there any way to bypass all these 'forwards' and go directly to the original email sent? I've never seen this on any 'windows tricks' site, or anything, and was just wondering if there might be some time-saving feature to bypass all the 'forwards'.

    thanks in advance to any and all...

    I used to send the people who send me those emails a link on how to copy and paste. Now I just give up and delete them. :rolleyes:

    Same here bassetman. If they can't learn copy and paste or how to use emailstripper then I give up.

    So, I guess you're telling me that there are no methods to get past the 'forwards' directly to the original message, right?

    Deke, he was asking for a short cut to the emails buried with emails, not just how to see the first one! ;)
