    Re: End of mail message (Firefox 6.0)

    Can you confirm the mail application you are using?

    Re: End of mail message (Thunderbird 1.0)

    I do not use Thunderbird so hopefully another Lounger will be able to assist.

    Re: End of mail message (Thunderbird 1.0)

    I look for the word Edit and didn't see it. , so I made another post. Please tell me where it is so that this will not happen again. I've never tried to make a correction before.

    End of mail message (Thunderbird 1.0)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by cbaldrey on 20-Dec-04 11:24. Subject changed to reflect actual software in question.)</P>When I viewed a reply to my mail, I noticed there was this message:" Oriiginal Message Follows. I will be away, but will reply as soon as I return."

    I don't know where the message came from and I want to remove it. I've checked Options and Accounts with no results. I rember adding a message like that in AOL Instant Messenger, but I would never add that kind of message to the end of an email.

    Any help will be sincerly appreciated.

    Re: End of mail message (Thunderbird 1.0)

    >> When I viewed a reply to my mail...

    Can you clarify:

    Is this an incoming reply to an email you sent to someone else?
    Or the reply you sent to an incoming email?

    Re: End of mail message (Thunderbird 1.0)

    I'm replying to both your messages, two in one, so to speak.

    <Can you clarify> This was seen on an incoming reply to a email I sent to someone else.

    <Try the icon> When I clicked on Help using Thurnderbird I saw no number 8.

    When I write a message, Reply-To appears at the top of the compose window with a drop-down arrow. From this I can see several options. None is what I wanted to see, which was none, or delete. Therefore I removed my reply to email address, addressed the message and sent it.

    I have to do that on every email I send which is a pain. What I want to do is find that ding dang option and destroy it. I've clicked on every heading at the top and can't see anything that will help me get rid of the Repy-To option.

    I hope I've explained the problem clearly and what I want to do. If not, just ask more questions and I'll answer the very best I know how.

    Re: End of mail message (Thunderbird 1.0)

    In reverse order:

    >> <Try the icon> When I clicked on Help using Thurnderbird I saw no number 8
    My post was in reply to your post 437200 above: I look for the word Edit and didn't see it. , so I made another post. Please tell me where it is so that this will not happen again. I've never tried to make a correction before. I assumed you were having difficulty in finding how to edit a post in this forum, not in Thunderbird. If you look to the top right of a post you have made, you will see the icon I included in my post. If you click on that, you can edit the post and correct any errors you may have made.
    If you are viewing a message and click on Help at the top of the page, it will take you to the relevant section for posting, editing and replying to messages - this being Help #8.

    <Can you clarify> This was seen on an incoming reply to a email I sent to someone else.
    If it was on a reply to an email message you sent to someone else, then surely it has come from the person you sent the original email to. Have you tried asking them?


    Finally, you wrote When I write a message, Reply-To appears at the top of the compose window....
    Is this related to the original question, or a new one?
    Why do you want to remove the Reply-To: entry? It allows the recipient to (e.g.) click on Reply and have the message sent to whom you want. This is normally the sender, but doesn't have to be. If the Reply-To: header exists in an email, it contravenes the RFC standard if it does not contain a valid email address.

    Re: End of mail message (Thunderbird 1.0)

    I'm getting more and more confused every day. Please forgive me, but you were correct in understanding that I was trying to edit a post. I did as you originally suggested and went to Help on the Lounge and found Help 8, which I printed and will keep for future reference..
    the fault is mine, I didn't understand that you were suggesting that I use Help on here. Instructions have to be very clear when you're dealing with someone like me..

    To clarify how the message appears please bear with me. If I send an email using Thunderbird with Reply-To : (my email address), and it's replied to, at the bottom where Original Message appears, there I will see the subjet message which I am trying hard to remove.. The only way I can see the message is if I receive a reply. I cannot make it appear otherwise.

    Am I making this clearer? I appreciate your finite patience, don't give up on me just yet..

    Gloria

    Re: End of mail message (Thunderbird 1.0)

    It sure sounds as though the other person is saying they are away. Not sure why their mail program then attaches your original message... I guess they all work a bit differently. If you get this kind of reply from someone who you KNOW is not away, then I would start getting concerned, but it really does not sound as though there is anything wrong with your system.

    By the way, the reply-to address is optional. You only need it if you want replies to go somewhere other than the address you are using for the "from" address.
