Deleting info on an email

I have not been able to find out how to delete addresses and other information within the email before I send/forward it to someone else. I used to do it on my computer at work, but this one at home won't let me do it the same way. At work I would click on forward. Then I would highlight the info I wanted to delete and press the delete button. I can't do that here. I have gone into just about everything I can and even right clicked on buttons, but I can't find a solution. Please help.

    I forgot to add that when I click to forward a message, the computer puts it in the form of an attachment. This prevents me from being able to edit or clean it up. Please help.

How do I delete old email address with Verizon. All my emails keep going to old account


This won;t stop them going to the old account, they will just be returned. If this is what you want, then

Otherwise, perhaps if you were to set up forwarding: this might help so that you can read the emails which are wrongly addressed.

Non-delivery notification "Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients" sending e-mail to contacts

This assumes that SOME recipients are getting the messages. If so, go your address book and find the addresses for the failed recipients. Then edit or delete and reenter them when you are sure you have the correct information

How do I change my email address ?

1 -Simply set up a new email address on gmail or any other provider.
2 - In Outlook, log onto your old email address.
3 - Create a message rule to forward all messages received in your old email address Inbox to your new email address. To do this go to the Message heading and select "Create Rule From Message".
4 - Remember to inform everybody that your email address has changed. The easiest way to do this is to have an auto-reply from your old email address that informs message senders of the details of your new email address.
5 - If you think some people may send emails to your old email address in the distant future, you may want to log into your old email from time to time to ensure that it is not deleted due to inactivity.
6 - You can also post your new details on Facebook or any other social media platforms if you wish.

How do i combine all my yahoo accounts to just one. over time i have created numerous yahoo accounts.and i just want to combine all my yahoo accounts to just one

You can import all the contacts from the various accounts into the one you choose to save. (See here.) Then you'll have all your contacts in one place. Then send an email to all the contacts from the various accounts, telling them your master email address. Don't close the old accounts immediately, but set them up to forward incoming emails to your new account for a month or so until everyone gets the new address and is up to speed. You might get some stragglers that weren't on your contact list but you wish to remain in contact with. You can also forward any emails or files you wish to preserve from the old accounts to the master account. Then delete them from the old account. Clean up the old accounts by deleting unwanted emails and files, en masse if neccessary. (Learn how to select and delete multiple emails at once using the shift and ctrl keys if you don't already know how to do so.)
Finally, when you're sure you no longer need the old email accounts, simply close the account as described in this article. and refer also to this article. As long as you maintain the master account, you'll still have access to email, but once you close an account, it can no longer forward email to you. It is permanently closed. So take it gradually if you're uncertain, just to be cautious.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

If I understand your question, you just want to remove the header of an email, such as the From/To/Subject information before forwarding it to something else. If that is correct, then it is as simple as clicking the Forward button, then you can delete any text that is in that email, including the headers.

I want to access my work outlook express email at home

It depends on what your company has set up. Some companies have what's called 'Outlook Web Access'. You go to a site and login, and can do all of your email right there. You don't use outlook itself, but a browser version. So, ask if you have this set up, and if so get the URL info and start working from home! if you can access your work email within outlook, the answer is no. A very easy way to have all your messages forwarded to your home outlook is to create a rule from your work computer. Do this: (may vary somewhat depending on the OS you are using) in outlook go to tools/ rules/ create new rule and create a rule so all mail in your inbox or specific senders is forwarded to your home address.
Such as all mail addressed to (your work email address) forward to (your home email address) You can always delete the rule later.

Delete unwanted items

if the unwanted addresses are in the <to:,cc:,bc:> lines of the email you want to forward, hi-lite the address and hit delete. If you want to add addresses, just type them in and type a comma between each one. Once you have the email the way you want it hit forward (not send).
