When I delete a header from a received message that I wish to FORWARD a bunch of little icons show up where the header used to be.

How may I delete these little guys. Have tried everything

Thanks

Are you clicking ahead of the first entry of the header, holding down the Shift key and clicking after the last entry of the header before deleting?

Thanks much for the response, Dan.

I tried your suggestion and the header is deleted but the little icons are still there against the left margin.

Try this: select the message body (Ctrl+A), Insert/HTML..., select the content in the Insert window you wish to delete, Delete.

SFHOWES

I sincerely apologize that I was in error when I responded that the icons were gone. They are not, so I believe that my cursor was in a space that did not allow them to show.

I am feeding this back in case some else has this problem, it is not the fix.
I truly don't want anyone to waste time on this minor hiccup so you may disregard my request for help.

Thanks much to all
