StripMail - stop sending all those forwarding marks

review by ClifNotes, Jul 2006


I forward quite a few emails to friends, but I don't like all those ">" and "|" marks that some email clients put into emails that have passed through more than one person.


What can you do about it?


Here's what I do:

1. Hit forward in the email.

2. Copy or cut the entire email from the compose window.

3. Fire up StripMail and paste in the email.

4. Hit the "Do it all" button.

5. Paste the reformatted email back into the compose window.


StripMail is easy to use, does the job, and it's a single executable file that doesn't need installed. Just double click it and start removing those nasty looking forward marks.




Quote from the website

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.
