Stripmail

  • Generic Company Place Holder Stripmail

Basically, StripMail removes all the ">" and "|" characters which end up decorating any piece of mail which has gone through several send/reply cycles. It will also turn broken lines into neat paragraphs, or turn paragraphs into a series of terminated lines. StripMail requires you to copy text to the clipboard, and then run it. The copied text is automatically pasted in; from there, you can choose any of the available options. Then you copy the text back and paste it into your source.

Who should use StripMail? People who deal with a lot of forwarded mail that is almost illegible due to multiple replies and quotes, or people who regularly get text files from non-Windows operating systems which lack proper (i.e, Windows-style) text formatting. StripMail is a small, simple, and free utility which takes up no ongoing system resources, so it can be there if you need it--and it doesn't clutter up your memory if you don't.
