    You no longer have to bounce mail off of an unknown username on some server somewhere (which costs them money).

    1. :) While viewing the email you want the html codes from press "forward" on the sidebar. While viewing a post press send/forward.

    2. :) Scroll down to the "TO:" line and enter your email address.

    3. :) Erase the Subject line.
    4. :) Scroll down to the top left corner of the body/text area of your email. IE. The text area of your email box.

    5. :) Press return/enter two times.

    6. :) Press alt z.

      Looks like §

    8. :) Press cmd x.

    10. :) Scroll down to the bottom of the page and press Send. You will get a return email with all the coding on it.

    And that's not all of them. The rest I cant post. Do not ask for them. Please save this or send it to anyone you think might appreciate these tips.
