    Isn't Ctrl+C what you are looking for? – Hydra May 19 '13 at 1:11
  • The answer is yes, but I assume you're asking the question because you're having a problem doing this. What have you tried that is not working? – batpigandme May 19 '13 at 13:48
  • What are you trying to copy? A part of the message? The whole thing? The headers? The full original message, with headers? – ale Jun 19 '13 at 13:09

Ctrl+A - Select All

Ctrl+C - Copy To Clipboard

If you just want to copy part of what's on screen:

  1. Mouse click at the beginning of the paragraph.
  2. Click Shift key and hold.
  3. Move your mouse to the last paragraph to copy.
  4. Mouse click again. Your text will be highlighted. You can let go of Shift now.
  5. Ctrl+C will copy the highlighted text to the clipboard buffer.
