Forwarding an email to my cell phone

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

Greetings, hd181a !

Instead of forwarding the email, you can redirect it.  Then you do not get the extra forwarding header.

If the email arrives as MMS or SMS to the phone, the message will get truncated by the service provider. Whats your cell phone type and how do you get the message.

I have a Nokia 3155I with Sprint PCS service.  When i currently get an email message all I see is the header from the forwarded message.  The boy of the email does not show up because it is truncated.

hd181a, did you try redirecting the email via MailRedirect extension?  Can you view the redirected emails?

Your CDMA phone does not support email messaging and you use MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service
 Send and receive messages containing text, an audio clip, and an image or video clip to other compatible devices (maximum message size: up to 100 kB)) for getting updates of new emails.

What I mean is that unlike the newer versions or GSM S60 Nokia phones, your phone can only recieve short text messages. This is setup by Sprint and you need to speak to them about it.
