Q. A lot of the e-mail I receive is cluttered with graphics such as >>>>> or HTML markup tags, making it hard to read. But even worse, when I need to send it to a client, I feel obliged to clean it up, which often is a tedious task. There must be an easier way.

A. You’re in luck. Not only is there a simple way to do it, but the solution is free. A product called eCleaner strips all those extraneous symbols from the message, leaving the text easy to read. To download eCleaner, go to www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,6492,00.asp .

Although eCleaner is not perfect—it will leave some clutter behind—the few leftovers are easy to erase manually. Also, it works with any e-mail program.
