| "ANCESTRY MAGAZINE QUICK TIP"
To clean up all of those >>>s that show
up when a message has been forwarded several times, what I normally
do is copy the message, including all the greater
than symbols (>>>), and paste it into my word processor.
Then I go into the Find/Replace function (found
in the "Edit" menu). I tell it to find > and replace it with
NOTHING (not the word, just leave the "Replace
With" field blank). Then tell it to go to work.
After that, I manually reformat the document the
way I like it, copy the whole thing, paste it into an e-mail,
and send the critter. I like to use programs
with which I am familiar, so it becomes almost automatic for me.
