I know there's been advice given in several threads that cover should be copy and pasted into the body of an email. However, it just looked a little bit too much/too long for a first email as my cover is almost 3/4 of a page. So when people say put the cover letter in the body, are they saying just the first paragraph/intro or the whole thing?
