Removing The > Marks When Forwarding Email

Have you noticed that sometimes when you reply to or forward an email, Outlook Express uses > marks to indent the original message. I said sometimes because this applies only to plain text messages.

When you reply to or forward an email and see all those > marks, you can easily prevent them from showing up in the first place. Before you click on Reply or Forward, go to Tools, Options and click the Send tab. You'll see two Plain Text Settings buttons. Click on the first one and a dialog box will pop up. Remove the check mark from the "Indent the original text..." option and then click OK and OK again.

Now you can select the message to reply to or forward and the > marks will be gone.
