The small freeware application StripMail can pluck unwanted paces and characters from your e-mail messages nearly instantly. Paste the text into the application and click separate buttons to remove extra characters, close line gaps, and copy the newly reformed text or click 'Do it all' to reformat all at once. Though we're not sure how we'd ever use it, another button adds indentations back in. What's missing is an 'Undo' button to toggle between 'before' and 'after' views, and a browser component that lets you eliminate extra characters from your Webmail without manually transferring the text. Regardless, StripMail's all-in-one button and the capability to clear characters other than the '>' pushes it ahead of some competitors.

I downloaded it again from here after having sacrificed the application when changing computer hardware and platform. Downloaded from this site and had my Firefox/Google browser hi-jacked by that pesky virus from Conduit advertising. Beware.
This program is easy to use, once you get the hang of it.
I have a couple of gripes regarding this program. One, it does not seem to actually be installed, but rather I must go into internet explorer each time and double click on the exe file. Secondly, the instructions cannot be printed out - which I prefer to reading on screen. Finally, downloading it from this site cause a hostile takeover by bing of my browser. I finally figured out how to get back to google, but it still loads a msn webpage in addition to my regular homepage, and that is the most annoying thing. Not sure if I will ever download anything from here again.
