Please include the feature to Copy/ Paste Text from e-mail app in view / reading mode. This is much needed feature and current workaround for having to hit forward / reply is cumbersome.

Copy-paste is a missing feature in many apps: https://together.jolla.com/question/832/system-wide-clipboard-copy-paste-capability/

Not possible directly from email. But if you need it, you can do the following:

  1. Select Forward (or Reply) from Pulley menu.

  2. Go to the "Original message" part and long press on the text to copy (the highlighted text can be expanded or narrowed).

  3. Copy to clipboard.

  4. Paste from clipboard.

At least we have a way to do it, but I would prefer if it was possible in the reading view.

Like german "ebay kleinanzeigen"... what a pity

4 years after, and still no way of copy/paste from the email app!

Would it be possible to add this must-have feature to the next release?

Indeed this would be great. Maybe it is one of the everyday features I am missing the most.
