I'm really glad I'm not the only one who needs to read the messages that
inspired the replies! I also need the original message copied into the
reply because I usually have to refer to it WHILE I'M WRITING MY REPLY. I
sometimes lose track of what inspired me to reply in the first place.
Sometimes it even helps me when I need to remember who I'm replying to!
However, Nancy does have a point. I do find it's a waste of a lot of time
arrowing down through the copied original message, just looking for the
beginning of the reply! So I usually put my reply first, like I'm doing
now. I leave the copied stuff last, so it becomes optional for the reader.
Before I begin writing I have to hit return a couple times then arrow up
to the beginning before I write the reply. I find its not much trouble, if
I remember, of course!
Maybe this helps?
