I have Windows 7. When I forward a message sent to me, or if I include an
original message with my reply, the formatting gets screwed up. A full pag
e width message to me gets to the new recipient as a 1/4 page wide message
that takes up 4 times as much vertical space on the page. Sometimes a bunc
h of formatting characters also show up. My normal computer guru doesn't h
ave any ideas. What can I do?????

Your quesion doesn't make sense. "Windows 7" is an operating system,
not an email program. What program do you use for email? Or do you use
a web mail service? If so which one? Much more detail from you is

No idea what Mail User Agent (MUA) you are using. But, I note that
your message, here, was posted as one long continuous line of text.
This suggests whatever you are using to post *here* automatically
breaks lines for *you* -- without injecting those line breaks
into the text.
[For example, I manually inserted 5 newlines/linefeeds in my
above paragraph. For *your* original post, cited above, I
asked Tbird to break that one long line into the 6 lines that
you now see.]
I'd look at your MUA and see how it is configured to "compose" messages.
It may be breaking lines for you at fixed places -- instead of at the
width of your window (as was probably the case for your message, here).

I've had the same problem. It is not you but the different formats that
might have been embedded in the message sent from a different mail
client. If you were both using the same mail client, for example I use
Thunderbird, there would be no problem.
