XP SP2 Outlook Express Or WLM.

Have just had cause to reply to an email and wanted to enclose as an attachment a previously received email.

Easiest way?

Dogbreath1,

Could you just copy and paste the text/images?
Does it have to be the complete email?

i would guess save the original mail in word or such then new message and insert, choose saved message or forward the original?

Yup, I'm sure I can. But I'm interested to know if what I'm proposing is possible.

Cheers, johnny. Same response to you as to Ollyolly!! ;)

Only possible I believe, as per johnnyrocker's suggestion.

Tbh, I suspected as much. I was intrigued to find out whether someone had a little miracle up their sleeve!

Usually, miracles we do in seconds, the impossible takes a little longer!

But on this occasion, don't hold your breath - no pun intended ... LoL

For OE & Thunderbird open the mail you want to use as an attachment then go to File/Save as and save it to some obvious location. Then when you send the new mail, attach the resultant .eml file using the usual procedure.

Slightly different methods of achieving the same thing....and both work fine. Thank you both very much.

Breath held to good effect! ;)

Grreat, thanks for your feedback. I don't use OE nor Thunderbird - so couldn't offer any direct assistance. But glad you are sorted now.
