    Hold shift while scrolling the wheel to highlight text, press the back button to delete highlighted text.

    The method I use is:
    - open the email you want to forward
    - select and copy the text of that email
    - open a new email and paste the text into the new email
    - you can then edit the test in the new email

    There's an app called Forward, Reply and Edit that does what you want. It's free. i use it and it works perfectly!

    Once you download the app, just click on it. Then hide the icon. It puts the options in your BlackBerry menu when you are in emails.




    Forward, Reply and Edit allows your BlackberryTM Smartphone to edit emails you forward or reply to others. Use it to fix spelling mistakes, add content, delete content, add comments, etcin emails you forward or reply to.

    I've read that not being able to edit/delete from a FORWARD or even a reply is because of Rim's business friendly methods. If you forward, you forward EVERYTHING and it might be considered unethical to edit or delete stuff from the original.

    I use the 'forward" program referred to above.

    i like to remove other addresses when forwarding an email. i don't feel comfortable exposing previous or cc'd email addresses. i would think that especially in a business environment this would be considered bad etiquette.

    It's also extremely annoying to receive an email with a wall of cc'd emails to scroll through before getting to the actual email. Removing non essentials from the body is also useful.

    i can't see how it's a security feature, since you can edit forwarded emails when sending from every other source. But i suppose that possible! Interesting. That sounds like the camera shutter debate

    In any case, i love that app!
