MS don't seem to do "paste as quotation, but for the pre-existing text
in a reply the procedure is as follows...
In MS Outlook Express you need to select the <Tools> drop-down menu, and
from that select <Options>. Click on the tab that says <Send> and make
sure that you have "Plain Text" selected under "Mail Sending Format".
Click on <Plain Text Settings...> and make sure the box to the left of
"Indent the original text with" is checked, and ">" is selected in the
box to the right. Click on <Apply> and then on <OK> and you are all set
(and as an added bonus your messages will not be truncated by vrtpaleo.)
I for one can second what Stephen has said. This is the exact same thing my
brother showed me a few days ago.
