As Diane says, each e-mail program is different. That's one reason
I still use this old version of Netscape, It's comfortable like that
1950 Desota I once had. My program allows me to delete the unnecessary
portions of the text I'm responding to. I try to leave enough of the
original message so that my reply has some context to be based on.
I guess the old rule about not reposting more than 20 lines of the
original message no longer holds. It's good practice even if it is
no longer a rule. We should do it if we can.
