    You can't just copy HTML and paste it and expect everything to work. There would also by styling attached to the email, as well as images.

    If you want it to look like the original, that implies that you only want to change text which means you don't want to edit the HTML...you want to edit the text.

    In which case, you can simply hit the forward button, and modify the words to say whatever you want...the email will look the same and you can change values to whatever you want.

    That's about as far as I'm willing to go with this since I wouldn't want to be getting emails that look like PayPal emails from anybody other than PayPal...
