Please Login to Remove!

Is there a setting or OS version that will let me type inside the body of a received email?

Not that I am aware of - for example when you forward an email, and want to put comments in the forwarded portion?

To update a tech question the sender required the reply be placed a specific portion of the body of the original message. Fine, I can always use my provider's webmail site as a work-round, right? WRONG! Worthless effing browser can't open it. Sheeeeeesh.

Is it possible to copy the e-mail, and paste it into a new e-mail. That way you'll at least be able to add comments in-line.

It's not an ideal solution by far but the best one I can think of.

Copy/paste is also disabled for the body of the original message. It's perverse!

I'm not sure if this app is still offered in App World but I use "Forward with Edit". It was $1.99. I believe this is what you're looking for.

No. The edit functions only work on recognized numbers, email addresses, etc. No select, no copy, no nothing.

Thanks! It's there in two flavors, a free version and a paid one that lets you forward attachments. So far it works half the time. Some emails contain stuff that stymies it. In particular the one that prompted this thread! Too effing funny.

EDIT: Perhaps it sees the body as an attachment somehow and wants me to get the $ version to manipulate it? I'll take the $3 gamble for the team.

Ditto. Huh? I haven't done it in a while, but I have done it a bunch of times. I would reply, copy the original email text into the new email body, delete the original email using the menu, insert my responses interspersed in the copied text, etc. and then send. Is there someone different now with some OS versions, I wonder?

Or something. I'm on 526 or whatever the latest ATT OS is. I have a "select text" option in the menu, but it only works on my response, not on the original email. The trackpad just bounces from one clickable phone number or email addy to the next. Try it with a 9800.

Before or after I hit reply the result is the same. I can't do anything inside the received message except click phone numbers or email addys.

Im on TMob UK .570 and copy fine from the original text. Paste as usual to new reply.

Edit: Actually, I can copy from the reply body as well and delete the original body after Ive pasted.
Have never done it in the past but just tried both ways and worked for me. Im on BIS.

I didn't think I needed to ask, and I was waiting, expecting someone else to say, "Oh yeah, that's another thing you can no longer do in OS 6." But that is appearing to not be the case. Soooo, Did you try a hard reset?

By the way, I just tested using the thread subscription email and it works like I recalled and as others are saying: Select, Copy, Paste from original email in the reply into the body of the reply. I'm using 9700/5.0.0.714.

I'm using OS 6.0.0.600, just upgraded a few minutes ago. I opened an email, went to the menu button, chose "select", then scrolled through the text of the email, pressed the "enter" button, chose copy, opened a "reply", pressed enter again, chose "paste" and it was right there.

I'm running .526, and I tried opening an email, opened a reply, scrolled into the copied original text, used two fingers on the screen to select some text, and then pasted that text into the reply. That works too!

I got it work on the select option. I have to make sure the menu option is "select" not "select text." I'm not exactly certain what triggers the difference, but I suspect it pertains to whether or not a clickable number or address is highlighted. Since the highlighting can occur off screen, it makes for some colorful language.
