    I downloaded Email Stripper to take a look. When I click on the .exe it gives me a dos prompt and says "This program must be run under W32." What now.

    I don't know. When I click on the .exe file it goes right to the program. Did you try to make a desktop shortcut? sorry I really am no much help. It is a good simple program

    StripMail is a FREEWARE utility that:

    Strips the characters ">" and "|" from forwarded e-mails.
    Formats the text into paragraphs, making it easier to read.
    Changes the text's right margin, by indenting.
    Can be used with any e-mail client.

    Hi suz15april,

    I use StripMail for other things too,
    like if i copy text from a web page,
    sometimes its got gaps in, or peculiar
    spacing which doesnt matter if i just
    want the text.

    It will tidy up the text into paragraphs.
    You can alter the 'indent' to any other
    character, the '>' and '|' are the most
    usual. You can copy and paste into it,
    its not just for email.

    but then, i've never tried it with 'XP'
    (i dont like XP)

    Hi Suzi,

    If the strip whatever is not working for you - why dont you try dumping your email into Notepad and do a simple find and replace - I admit its a little tedious but why go for a utility when you can do this with Notepad.


    Take care
