Build Identifier: 

I would like to control my quoting options when replying-to or forwarding
messages, on a message by message basis.  I propose two right-click options for
messages 'Reply special' and 'Forward special' that allow the user to override
their default reply/forward settings and choose such settings for the given
reply such as:

a) Compose in HTML.
b) Quote original message (or not).
c) Specify the quote char.
etc ...

Reproducible: Always

Perhaps this is better done as an extension.  Even the default behaviour is not
very configurable - ie, what the quote ('> ') char is.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This functionality is best added as an extension.
