Text column will not resize

I am copying an email that was sent to me in Outlook Express and then
pasting it into Word so I can edit it. I can not adjust the margins so that
the text column will resize. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Thanks

Try pasting the message as unformatted text (use Paste Special in Word.)
That removes the HTML formatting.

Thank you, but that did not work. The only way I found to correct it was to
manually go in and use the delete and the backspace buttons at the end of
each line to force the text to change. After I did that I could edit the
margins and justify etc.. If anyone knows of a way to copy and paste without
having to go through all that I would like to know how to do it.

Thanks again,
