open an email so that it opens in a new window
go to file --> page setup --> define print styles
click on "memo style" and press "edit"

when I look at those options from the main window I can edit the items.  but when I do it form an email it only give me the memo view.  I removed the header and footer information and that doesn't seem to have an effect.

going there are you able to edit "memo style" and remove all the options in the footer and still do you get date at the bottom

Ok, if someone sends me an email using "text" format not HTML it will work fine.  but if I get an HTML email which is 95% of all my emails, I can't get it to work following the same steps.

Can you send yourself an email with text format.

I can send you but if the issue is solved , it would get the unfair advantage by helping you offline.. Try send a message in text format yourself and check first and later we can see

It works fine if it is a text message.   but html's still show the date.
