    Do IE users see proper quoting? I'm using thunderbird on vista and it is
    VERY!!! annoying that certain messages make no distinction between the
    previous message text and the reply. Egads, that doesn't sound so
    difficult to fix.

    The problem is deciding who needs to fix what.
    It could be argued that OE is doing what it should by not inserting quotes
    on 'quoted-printable' encoded content, so GG should change the way it sets
    the encoding parameter. But nobody seems to blame GG.

    And yes, OE users do see that the quoting is broken, but mostly don't do
    anything about it.

    Personally, I swap to Thunderbird if I am ever moved to reply to a post made
    via GG.
