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

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.

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.

Sembee or anyone else,

How would I use my phone to access a POP3 mailbox?

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,

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

Anyone have any other ideas?
