For Eudora users: If you wish to reply to a specific message in MMD, simply highlight the message (hold down the left mouse button and drag across the message and stop when all you want included is highlighted in blue). Click on Edit/Copy - that will send the highlighted text (rather than the entire digest) to the Windows Clipboard. Then click Message/New Message. Type firstname.lastname@example.org in the To: line. Fill out the Subject line.
Then hop down to the first line of the blank message and click so that the cursor appears, and click on Edit/Paste. Bingo! The original message appears and you can edit it as new text and add your own comments. When you're done, click on Queue then File/Send Queued Messages. You're done, and our beleaguered editor ;=) is relieved of much needless work.

[ Thanks, Ron. Other mailers should have similar copy-and-paste
[ features like Eudora, too. The problem is not my work, but that
[ the unwanted text is causing "e-mail overflow"! -- Robbie
