Strip "carrots" in email.

How do you "strip" the carrots (>>) that appear in replys in email? I want to reply with the original post but without the carrots. It takes too long to cut and paste in Word...delete all the carrots individually...then paste back into my message. I use the Netscape email.

EUDORA allows you to strip formatting from a block of text with two or three clicks of the mouse.. I haven't tried it on the >>'s but I don't see why it shouldn't work, assuming they are considered formatting..

you can always use "search and replace" to remove the >> characters when you cut and paste into Word.. it's faster than deleting them individually..

More labor than I want to do. Is there an email app that would do this(Eudora maybe)?

Can you copy from the original e-mail or are you talking about stripping them out of e-mails that arrive with a compost heap of carrots? In Eudora, I copy from the original and paste into a new e-mail or SimpleText document. Once you hit "reply" or "forward" all the carrots are inserted. If the original contains the carrots, there's not much you can do other than strip them manually if you want it to look right.

I still think there's a better way. I can't be the only person trying to do this...increase the ante.
