If you usually receive and send lots of forwarded emails you've probably noticed that the text inside is marked with that ">" formatting character, so it gets increasingly difficult to read.
However, you don't want to spend ten minutes cleaning up a simple joke.
The best solution here is emailStripper, a simple tool that cleans the forwarded text for you.
emailStripper is an standalone app so simply run it, paste the messy email text inside its interface and click on "Strip it! ". Voilà! Your text is ready to be copied back to the email message.
emailStripper only removes special characters such as ">" but it doesn't get rid of extra blank spaces or newlines, which would have been nice to have.
