Q: How can I delete a group of e-mail addresses from an e-mail I’m forwarding? I use Windows.
A: Your e-mail program can’t forward only part of a message; the Internet mail system isn’t built that way.
But there is a workaround. You can copy the original e-mail and paste it into a word processing program, then use the program to delete the e-mail addresses you don’t want to share. Just erase the To and CC, or “carbon copy,” lines of the original e-mail.
Copy the edited message and paste it into a new e-mail. Then address the e-mail to the person with whom you were reluctant to share all those addresses. After you hit “send,” the recipient will see only your e-mail address.
For editing, use the free Windows program Notepad. Go to Start, choose All Programs and click on Accessories. Click on Notepad to open it.
Q: How do I download free audiobooks from Internet websites and use my Windows PC to burn them to CDs or transfer them to my iPod Nano?
Debbie Becker, Grand Rapids, Minn.
A: First of all, you need some free audiobooks. For a list of 14 websites that provide free audiobooks you can download, see tinyurl.com/kjsbmlv (OK, it’s a list of 15 websites, but the link for “ejunto” doesn’t work.)
The free audiobooks you download can be burned to a disk by using either iTunes or Windows Media Player, just as a song could be.
To import an audiobook into iTunes or Windows Media Player, see tinyurl.com/mbpv7xo.
To put an audiobook on your iPod, you must first import the audiobook to iTunes, then transfer it from iTunes to the iPod. See tinyurl.com/k2srjwo.
