I know what you mean now. When replying to this messages I got the '>' marks, but often I get a black line at the side of the paragraph and when writing a reply it's possible to use formatted text (bold, underlined etc). It's very annoying as I first make the text into "plain", but then I have to write the > marks myself at each line. Is there a way I can convert the formatted HTML text into plain and get the quotation marks there automatically, instead of the black line?
As I can read the formatting myself (I use Outlook Express), I haven't really thought about the problems with it.
