Italian term or phrase: tricopiare
It is used as a closing of a message: "Tricopiare, Anna". It might contain a spelling error. I would be very pleased if you could tell me what the writer (Anna) is trying to say.
In another message she wrote "mi lavo". I don't understand that expression either. Given the context, the translation "I wash" would be quite absurd.

Explanation:
or "triplice copia". Anna should make 3 copies of the message.... also, we need the whole message to understand the "mi lavo" thing...

neutral  Gian: se Anna è il mittente... che ragione c'è di scrivere "tricopiare"? Un verbo certo NON usato in italiano; non era più facile 3 copie? Chi fa o deve fare 3 copie?

  -> scusa, hai ragione. È Anna che scrive il messaggio. Avevo pensato che magari fosse un invito alla segretaria, Anna, di "tricopiare" il messaggio...
