Forwarding an email to my cell phone from a specific recipient

I have a rule setup in Outlook 2003 that forwards email from a specific email recipient to my cell phone.  The rule works fine but I cannot see the actual content of the email.  Is there a way I can strip out the first part of the message telling me it's an email forwarded from the recipient?  There is a limit to the length of a message my cell phone can receive and I cannot see the actual content of the message.

Thanks,
Paul

With native rules your options are limited.
You might be able to do something with a macro, but that would require Outlook being left running all the time.

Does your mobile phone provider offer a POP3 mailbox that you can collect with the phone?
What about Outlook Mobile Access?

Get a text message to say there is a message, then use OMA to read the contents.

I looked at Outlook Mobile Manager but I think it needs to be running on a client to forward email and I have a laptop.

My cell phone is a Nokia 3155i with Sprint PCS service.

Thanks,

Does the phone have a POP3 client? I am in the UK, so my knowledge of Sprint PCS phones can be written in very large letters on a very small postage stamp.

Simon,

Leaving Outlook running is possible.  I hve never writtend an Outlook macro.  Do you have an example of something that I could use?

thanks,
Paul

I don't do anything with Outlook Macros. I am a server guy. You should post the question in the Outlook topic area, which is more client orientated than this one.

I looked at the web site but did not see anything that looked like it would work.

Anyone have any other ideas?
