I should also note that in the footer of each message there is a mailto: link that sets up a reply to the original sender. I've never noticed it before, although it's always been there, and I assume this can't be broken by any changes they've done to the headers.

The link doesn't set up the quoted text, just a blank body, so even this isn't a satisfactory workaround.
