Different problem/question this time. The first one is still resolved BTW Thanks!!

Is there some way for me to post an email I recieved on my hotmail account to a thread I started here on Aquest? Or do I have to type the whole thing out? Like I've said I'm very remedial when it comes to computers and you're help and patience will be greatly appreciated.


PS I have windows Vista Ultimate if that matters_mykl

Hello my friend.

Yes there is a way without typing it all out using copy and paste. Here is a step by step.

Open up the email in your Hotmail account. Now start at either the top or the bottom of the section you want to copy and "mouse over" that or the whole section. (to "mouse over" place your cursor (flashing l sign) at the begining of the document and while holding the left mouse button down drag the cursor all the way down to the bottom of the page [it will change color:ef60c5ab] then let go and the section will remain highlighted).
After it is highlighted place your cursor over any part of the highlighted section and right click. Select "Copy" from the drop down menu.

Now come over here to Agoraquest and open your reply box. Put the cursor in the reply box where you want the Hotmail email to be inserted and right Click the mouse. From the drop down menu select "Paste" and the email will now be in the reply box.

Another way to copy and paste is to open up the email in Hotmail, go to the top of your browser and select "Edit" from the drop down menu click on "Select all". This will highlight the entire page (but this way it selects everything and you might not want the names and addresses to show). Click on "Edit again and select "Copy". Then use the same instructions as above and paste your message into your thread here at Agoraquest.

If you have a problem or question please post back and I'll do my best to assist.

Joe

Hi Joe_I have one problem. I was able to copy and paste to Aquest just fine except that what I quoted appeared in a very large type. I went to edit and then the font box to shrink it but all sorts of other information (which I have no clue as to what it is) showed up. So I just deleted the post and did it again. So that's why the type is so large. is there some way to shrink it in the existing posts? and what would I do to prevent this from happeming next time?_Thanks mykl

I am not sure why this is happening. I tried a copy and paste from one of my Hotmail emails and the font remained the same size. Go figure.
Try this: from the Quick reply box paste your email into it. If it is in the large font, mouse over the entire section (hold down the left mouse button and drag the mouse cursor over the entire document). Let go of the mouse left button and go to the far upper left corner of the reply box and select 10 pt. from the pulldown menu.

Let me know.

Joe_Another member told me he had the same thing happen to him when he tried copy/paste an email once. I tried your suggestion on the very first post when I 1st posted it. I hope that made sense. Anyway when I 1st posted it I realised how big it was so I hit edit and was going to do exactly what you suggested. The problem was there was all of this information that appeared in the forwarded email. I have no idea what the info was. So I just deleted the post and did the copy/paste again and just left it big. I'll try it here and see if it happens and you can see for yourself.

I'm going to try editing it out and see what happens

That did it. Less work than typing it all out for sure. Do you know why all of that other stuff appears when I try to edit?

Mykl,

I have noticed the same problem sometimes when I use the Advance Reply but when I use the Quick Reply it doesn't seem to happen. It might just be some sort of anaomaly on this site.
