Ahh, I see (I'm not the OP or anyone who participated in this thread prior to 
now, iirc).

So, I went looking for the original of the post you forwarded here (in my mail 
folder) and couldn't find it--I may have deleted it.

I found a similar one, partially copied below just for reference--a very 
similar email also from Long Wind.

It seems that this message (and the one David refers to above) is the first 
boogered message, and I want to find out which email client caused the problem.

I viewed source and found this:

X-Mailer: WebService/1.1.11051 YahooMailNeo Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; 
rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0 Iceweasel/38.2.1

I'm not good at either reading or interpreting email headers, but I think this 
is telling me that the mail was generated (or replied to) using a web based 
emailer, presumably on Mozilla/5.0.

I don't know if that is the case, nor if there is some setting that can be 
changed (by the replier) to make quoting come out "properly".
