I have an email receipt that i want stored in ENScreen Shot 2016-08-10 at 10.08.05 PM.png

So I forward the email to EN

Later in reviewing my note

Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 10.09.36 PM.pngI notice that the amounts have been stripped out
I repeated the email, but the results are the same every time

(edited: thanks @Gazumpd, @csihilling)

Workaround is
- grab a screen image from the original email
- pdf 
I also added the email eml as an attachment to my note 

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and has an explanation.
I'd like to know the voodoo in my email that allows changes when I file it.

Guessing that the email is essentially a template,  with the detail fields assembled from one or more client databases to which a clip does not have access.  A screenshot or a print to anything will get all the details.  A 'copy and paste' clip from the screen will not.  Presumably part of the security measures - stops anyone altering the details of a visible invoice/ receipt.  Had the same sort of thing myself - just used screenshots if it happens.

Not optimal, but you may be able to print the email to PDF.  Tough to determine which invoices lose content when emailed, I suppose.  I've had it happen mostly with itineraries.
