Forwarding in OE

by jdorisco / August 21, 2005 10:09 AM PDT

Is there a way to set the OE default, so that an email will be forwarded exactly as it arrived? I keep forgetting to make changes to my emails before I forward them, and when they arrive, the images appear as little red X's. I would think that the OE designers would have made the forwarded content the same as the received content - by default. This is not the case. Maybe someone knows how I can fix this?

Windows XP Home/SP2, OE6.

Bob, If I wanted to add this feature to my outlook at work, would that be possible or the IT guys would prevent me from doing so?
The only option is to send out my attachments as a UU file. Other than that my files will go out as a MIM file. Good luck trying to open those files for the most part.
I really do not like outlook express. Has to be something better.

How about downloading Mozilla Thunderbird.

At my work I am limited inwhat I can and cannot download and install. If I can do it I do and if I can't install it I delete it.

I have to use Outlook because they set it up, however I was allowed to download and install Mozilla Firefox without being the administrator.

Hope this help.

IT Staffers

Bob, They have their heads up their A__!
We have had nothing but problems with software and the servers being at 96% capacity. The system is really slow.
We get warning messages all the time?Disk if Full. Out of Disk Space.
Our IT staffers are looking at the problem. Yet, nothing ever gets done or fixed for the last two years.
Kind of like talking to the wall sending them messages about our problems.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
