I receive long trail of E-mail names and addresses, that has been forwarded to me. I also forward e-mail frequently, and to avoid possible spammers getting those names and e-mail addresses, I delete the addresses and names 'BEFORE" I forward any of them.
-Here Is How-

After clicking "Forward" hold down the left mouse button at the "start" of the names and addresses you would like to delete,
drag to the botttom right of the names to be deleted, then release th mouse button.

With the text part you want to remove HIGHLIGHTED (selected) , hit the delete key or clicki the "Cut" icon (sissors)

Input your own personal message, picture etc.

You can use the above method to clean up the "Subject" box of unwsanted Ww, Re, [ ], etc. or change the subject to anything you would like.

Check over your mail.

"ADDRESS AND SEND" It Works. Good Luck

I find it easier to just copy and paste the text I want to send to someone into a new email instead of forwarding it
