Forwarding Messages In Gmail

Dear Computer Lady,

I have a question. I got a new computer Windows 7 and changed my E-mail to gmail.

I had eliminated the inbound message when I replied and was able to erase the list of names on a Forwarding on my old system, but I cannot discover how to do that with gmail. Can you help me? Thank you so much. Lou

Dear Lou,

I think one answer will be able to help you with both issues.

Just hit the “Forward” or “Reply” button before you try to delete the original message or the list of forwarded names.

Once you click on “Forward” or “Reply”, you will be able to highlight the list of recipients or the original message and then delete them.

    Just wanted to say that your suggestion that a users browser might offer email service. That’s what I have, which is really good about scanning for spam. I have Gmail, AOL, and my browser email. I use each one for different things and have been happy using all three.
