The body is not like the headers, so you just need to remove header lines not like Subject or From.

First use Filters\Restrict\Matching lines (grep)
with a perl pattern of

Code: Select all

^[a-z_-]+:
Then inside this, use Filters\Remove\Remove lines\Remove non-matching lines
with a perl pattern of

Code: Select all
