I use the plain text email composer exclusively. When I reply to an email, it puts the original email text in line, without the ">" characters in front of the lines, but with a "begin original message" line. I find this style of quote text absolutely unusable without WAY too much manual work to put in the > characters. The Mail/news reader has a feature that displays lines differently if they begin with ">". So, why doesn't the composer generate those lines??
I must correct something I wrote. I wrote "When I reply to an email". The problem I described occurs only when forwarding an email with the text "in line". But the complaint is the same. The text should be quoted as in a reply, IMO.
Based on reporter's comments that it is for forwarding and not replying to the mail that we do not quote > the text. But 4.x has the same behavior. We only quote when replying and not forwarding inline. JFD, Is this behavior ok or we should be quoting the text with '>' while forwarding inline too?

That's the correct behavior of Forward inline. Only replies quote the original message. Invalid
Right, it's separated by "Original Message", which is the whole point of forward.
