I created a document and framed it in one of the stationery formats.  It was then sent over to a friend for comments.  I can now no longer make changes to the document.  Whatever I try - cut, paste, creating a new paragraph is not possible.


I have also tried to move the text to a new document or a blank e-mail format, I can't make any changes. 


Please offer any help.  Why would this be so restrictive?

    Hmmm, was it maybe saved as a Template???


    Can you copy the text of the one in Sent folder?

    Because you can only edit emails that have been saved as a draft, and then only until you have sent it. Once sent it is carved in stone to prevent fraud.


    Suggestion: either recreate it, or take a screenshot and send that as an attachment to your friend.

    Have you tried Reply to that eMail, with it set to include it in the Reply?


    I'm thinking you could edit or copy it in the Reply.
