2.2 Replying to mail messages

If you are replying to a mail message (you have chosen Message > Reply in the mail reader) then the mailer window automatically fills in the To and Subject fields.

Choose Message > Insert Original to insert the text of the message you are replying to. Each line of the original message is prepended with a " > " quote prefix.

If you wish to use a quote prefix other than " > ", set the value of the variable lw:*mail-original-prefix* .

If you are forwarding a mail message, the text of the original message is automatically included when the mailer window is created, but no quote prefix is used.
