    I know how to copy a message and paste it. What I want is to create a 'book' of a series of emails for a present. I want the emails to look like email, i.e., I don't want simply the message copied and pasted into a document with all the other ones.The header with the sender, recipient, date and subject line is also important.

    When I have tried to do this using the 'print' button in the email (Yahoo), copying and pasting yields the email plus unattractive lines/boxes around the message and the header.

    Is there a way to copy the email so that it can be viewed just as it is when viewed in the account? I need the emails to be in one document for printing, not one email per page. Do I ask too much??? :)

    How about taking screen shots, cutting out what you want, and pasting it into a power point presentation?

    Use these directions, but instead of attaching to a thread import into a presentation : http://www.emailquestions.com/general/1316-take-screen-shot-using-microsoft-paint.html

    Do you need help finding the "book" software or does power point for work that?

    If you don't have office there is a free power point in an open source office download called Open Office.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    I have made my first attempt without success, but there will be others! I just don't have time at the moment. At the office and there is werk, werk, werk! I appreciate your quick response.

    I think the trouble is my lack of familiarity with Paint. I'll get some help with that and see if the idea you have will work for me.
