Probably a stupid question for all you experts out there, however bare with an old fart.........
I get a joke on google mail, it has pictures and text.
How can I edit it before I resend it? (Change a text)
Or before I copy it?

You can save the pictures to a suitable location on your computer. Then copy the text (highlight it and press Ctrl + C), then open Wordpad or similar and paste (Ctrl + V) it in. Then edit it as you wish. Save it if you want, or just select it and paste it back to a new Email and insert the photo if required. At least that's what I would do with Thunderbird, I'm not sure how you go with pictures on Google Mail.

Worked a treat!
If all you need to change is text, simply 'forward' the email but delete/change/add text as desired before you send. Far simpler?

Not sure if this will help but there is a facility to turn an email into Google doc. (http://gmailblog.*************/2008/12/new-in-labs-turn-email-into-google-doc.html)

You guys are just great!
One more question and then hopefully I can stop bothering you.........
I get an animated GIF image in a mail. I save it and it works fine.
Then I try to copy and paste it into a new mail, (G mail), and I get an empty square with a torn page symbol in the corner.
I know that I can add it as an attachment, and also paste the URL.............
Your expertise would be appreciated.
