Hi, I am using Thunderbird for my email now that I could not open the ".eml" extensions in OE, on my new HP media Center I just bought.Does anyone know how to " strip a received email of who sent it to me,,, and then forward as an email from me? I have tried by hitting "forward" , then deleting the original sender, then sending it to me to check it out,,,no good, the senders address and name are there in the body of the email. I need to forward a lot, but those receiving my forwards do not need to know who sent them to me, nor do they want their addresses going out to people they do not know.

I'm sorry I didn't research this a little better.

For example, a file with an .eml should open with Outlook Express on a default system.

How to configure Windows to open .eml extension attachments

* Click Start | Settings | Folder Options | File Types
* Scroll to Outlook Express Mail message and double click it.
* Double click 'open'.
* In "Application used to perform this action" enter the following:

* Click OK to close the window
