    I take it your using Windows Mail, if you are then what you are
    describing is highlighting a Phishing email, obviously you don't want to
    be replying to it, hence the reply is greyed out. I guess forward is
    avaliable so you can forward it on to report it though to who I don't
    know.
    The first time Windows Mail downloads what it suspects to be a Phishing
    mail it should of popped up a box explaining what it's doing and what
    you would like to do with future ones.
    If you go to Tools and then Junk E-Mail options, the final tab is for
    Phishing and you can select there what you want it to do with them.

    Hope this helps
