    Is it possible to copy/paste received email contents (in other words, quoted texts) within gmail app on samsung captivate? I tried many methods but nothing seems to, work. Such a basic function but I am unable to figure out. Please help.

    I tried a roundabout method. I logged in to gmail from the browser. I did the same select text from the web page (which happened to be my mail) and copied the email. Too bad. A phone like this is lacking basic functionality

    I dont think we have that option. I know with attachements there is an option under settings to go into Copy Text mode.

    Copy/Paste does not exist in the gmail app for android 2.1. The stock browser does support it tho, so if you use the stock browser to access the mobile gmail site you can do it.

    The new gmail app in the market that requires android 2.2 added copy/paste.
