I'm an old ttimer in that sense myself...and I have often brought up
the matter of trimming quotes...to no avial. :(
I *could* have used Ian's approach, and just pointed to that RFC #
822 page, with no further explanation, as a "hint". Which would of
course, leave the person I address, in the dark...unless he were
psychic or something. Since that page *doesn't* discuss the matter of
trimming quotes...just as it doesn't discuss MUA.

My gmail default settings are for plain text. However, even plain text
has two options. Just yesterday, I changed "Use default text encoding
for outgoing messages" to "Use Unicode (UTF-8) encoding for outgoing
messages" in hopes of improving the situation.
Onward and upward!
Think Google's kewl? Think again:
