From one email to the next, or from email to some other app? All emails?

I think I have 08.

Are you trying to copy from html emails? These often seem to ignore the copy command. In many cases, it is also difficult to select text, never mind copy it.

Workaround: reply to the message, convert the reply to plain text, copy from there, then delete the reply.
Sloppy, I know.

Thanks, you can also do edit message text to get that html out of the way. Seems ok today, I'll report back... was very weird.

confirmed, I have 2008 and no prob copy pasting even html emails. Perhaps some people have coded their emails so no copying possible? One of our websites does that.
