You shouldn't ever have to retype the message.  Just paste from the DOS 
box (or "Command Prompt").  It's easy using QuickEdit mode.

You select a rectangle of the text by selecting with the mouse, then 
using right-click to put it in the clipboard.

If that doesn't work, you haven't yet enabled QuickEdit mode.  Use 
right-click on the DOS box's title bar.  Choose Properties.  Select the 
first tab, which is Options.

You should then see a selection box called "Quick Edit Mode".  Turn it 
on, and you won't have this problem again.
