I am a new user of Thunderbird, after using Netscape for 14

Resolved Question:

I am a new user of Thunderbird, after using Netscape for 14 years. In Netscape when I forwarded a message, before I sent I had the complete message on the screen. I could change it, eliminate part of it, especially all the history/sender addresses, some pictures etc.... when I forward in Thunderbird, nothing comes to the screen but is in an attachment. I know the recipient gets the full message...with all the trimmings... that is what I want to avoid. am I missing something? thank you. John Xxxxxx

Hi,

 

You need to tell Thunderbird how the original message should appear in the Forward and or Reply window. To do this, open Thunderbird then:

 

For the Forward

Click Tools > Options > Composition button > General tab, then from the drop down list next to "Forward message" select Inline.

 

For the Reply:

Click Tools > Account Settings, then click on "Composition & Addressing" in the left pane, then check the box "Automatically quote the original message when replying"

 

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
