I just sent an e-mail to a doctor but it came back undelivered--apparently the address was out of date. Rather than type it all over again, I assume I can simply copy my e-mail text to a new Word document using the Edit feature. What are the steps to doing that?

That should be quite straightforward. Open your email client and find the original email - there will probably be a copy in the "Sent" or similar named folder. Double click the email to open it in a full window.
Press Ctrl+A (i.e. hold down the 'Ctrl' key and press the 'A' key at the same time.)
Then press Ctrl+C
You can close the email window and minimise the email client at this point.
Open word with a new blank document and press Ctrl+V the text from your email should appear in the Word document, the font will be changed to the default Word font but otherwise the text will be the same.

Hope that's what you were after. :thumbsup:

Another options. Point your mouse where you want to start coping and left click and hold. Drag the cursor to the end of what you wish to copy. When you have sccussfully highlight the area in blue, right click, and select copy. Minumize the screen. Go to where you want to paste, left click where you want it to start. Now right click and select paste. Your done. It seems involved but it is fairly quick and you only copy extactly what you want. Not the whole source. Unless you want the whole source of course.

Yet another option.
Copy the original body of the Email to a NEW Email, save it as a draft, and then send it when you get the correct address.

A few more options:

1. In Outlook open the sent email, select Actions on the menu and from the subsequent drop down select resend this message - then in the new message change the address to the correct one.

2. Open the email (any email app) and select forward. Place the correct address and the recipient can then see that you tried to send earlier.
