Quoting text in Outlook email

By winmorgan ·
Hi, I've just switched from Mac and am now using Windows XP Pro and Outlook to check email. On the Mac I used AOL (blecchh!) and Powermail :)

I'm getting used to Outlook, but I can't find ANY way to quote just part of the text in a message I'm replying to: With AOL, Powermail, Eudora, I could just highlight the part of the incoming mail I wanted to reply to, hit Reply, and there it was. In Outlook I can either not quote the whole email or quote the WHOLE email...no partial quotes allowed (at least not that I've been able to figure out).

Thanks for any and all help,

Win

I'm afraid you're going to have to copy and paste or just delete the un wanted text.

Didn't help, but that's probably due to Outlook's poorly thought out features, not your reply. I've finally switched to Eudora, which does allow partial quoting.

Thanks,

The Email Templates tool from http://www.emailtemplates.com does selective quoting quite nicely and a lot more.

I checked out the URL, but it's waaaaay too expensive an add-on just to permit me to do something Outlook should be able to do. Thanks for the Rx, but I switched to Eudora so I can just quote whatever's highlighted.

Thanks,

Win
