I have a pc that has WINDOWS XP PRO and using INTERNET EXPLORER 8. When i'm in my GMAIL ACCOUNT and i'm in an email that has been FORWARDED to me, i used to be able to delete JUST CERTAIN TEXT from this email by highlighting it then hitting the DELETE KEY. It doesnt do that anymore. For example, i get an email that has been FORWARDED to me and it has dozens of other email contacts. I want to delete those contacts.Cant do it by highlighting and using delete key anymore.I've run a DISK CLEANUP and DELETED COOKIES, TEMP INTERNET FILES. There was no change.What can i try? Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

If you hit FORWARD or REPLY on the email, that should allow you to delete the contacts. I have never heard of being able to delete stuff directly from the received email without Forwarding or Replying.
