    Snappermail (or other) - can import export text into message body

    Does Snappermail or any other client allow me to

    1. Receive a message with a lot of text (say >4k, i.e. bigger than Palm OS limit) and export it to Memo or better yet Doc without requiring multiple cut/paste?

    2. Import into the body of a message a similar quantity of text or DOC text?

    I can't do what I need to do with attachments.

    Eudora and Mobile Mail can't do what I'm asking. Can anything?

    I don't know if this answers any of your questions, but Snappermail has literally UNLIMITED message size. You could paste an entire novel (or more) into an email and it would send or receive it just fine.

    Markito, thanks. What I want is a way to receive a bunch of text in an email *body*, edit it and send it back. Or, to write a couple thousand words from scratch, then send them in a message body by email.

    I'd like to use QED or MiniWrite to write and edit if possible. I can't use attachments to make this work with my office system.

    I suppose I could just write and edit in the email prog itself, but I'm looking for a way to get text in and out. I'm amazed no one seems to have a "save as" or "export" or "save to" command for message texts, and likewise no "paste from" or "import text" or some such.

    Speaking of: Is it me or did everyone else wonder when they received Snapper Email's "Official release" today what happen to the conduits to open attachments (ie. MS Word, Excel, etc). I see they are now offering a "Beta Copy" of an interface they have negotiated with QuickOffice. Which, while Im sure it will work will end up being an additional $49.95 if you want it. Heck I thought Snapper had always promoted that these "conduits" to open these attachments were coming in "upcoming releases" I guess I missed the fine print that said it was goingto be extra.
