Can the content and date of a received email be altered?

Specs: Windows 10
I have some printed emails from between two business people. One of these people gave them to me and I cannot have access to the originals. For very good reason I believe that the person who gave them to me has edited their emails before printing them and possibly some from the other person if that's possible.
I have read that you can edit sent & received emails on Outlook but I'm not sure if this person uses it. The bottom of each page print out says in small writing the account person's name and after that it says: Squirrel mail
I am obviously not very computer savvy but it's really important to know this. Can anyone tell me if there a way they could have altered them? Thanks.

This has been asked here on previous occasions; and I'm not entirely sure what the truth of the matter is...

Which having said I dun a google trawl using your post header as the search term/string; and this is link to the results.

I suggest you view the assorted and decide for yourself?

How's this for a possibility - print emails to PDF file, use PDF editor is make changes, then print to paper.

But how to send it on (forward as email) as though the original email - untouched etc...; complete with any original headers and the rest?

I understand your comment, but I don't think it applies here.

OP said he only has printed copies. There's no headers in play, at least not in this situation.

Hi DerbyDad03 - The way I interpreted the post was that the OP was asking if one could edit the actual received email itself, so as to alter content - e.g. using (MS Office?) Outlook - and then send it on to whomever as if untouched.

When I forward an emistle (electronic form of an epistle...) I usually remove the sender's details - unless it's OK/appropriate to let it stay. But that doesn't mean I edit the actual (and usually concealed by default) transmission path.

Incidentally as your DerbyDad03 - what happened to numbers 01 & 02?

Gosh, the answer to your question is yes. All one needs to do is open the email, edit it, then print.

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

I was thinking what Jennifer said. Is that not what you were really asking?

I think there are a couple of ways (at least) one can interpret the original question. Is it the content only to be edited; or is it the full transmission path (all the stuff in the header) as well - which latter is actually quite complex and detailed...
