I don't think this will work for what the OP wants to do. I think Les Mikesell gave him the answer when he posted off my earlier post. Here it is again. Yes, after the fact you have to work from the machine that already has the text on the screen and can thus copy it to the X clipboard. You can ssh -Y from there to some other machine, start the program where you need this text, and paste it in. However, I thought the object of this exercise was to mail it somewhere. With the appropriate setup, machine B should be able to mail to the same place as machine A. Anyway, in the future, just be aware that you can do all the steps from any convenient X screen. Just ssh -Y to the places you want to run the commands and you'll be able to cut/paste among the screens. Another way you can do something similar is to install the vnc module in the X server. Then you can connect with any vnc client and pick up everything currently on the screen.
