I'd be happier if more clients at least allowed the option of using > to indicate quoting level, so it would be possible to edit them into a suitable format. And if html wasn't the default for so many clients.

When I try to manipulate an email full of quotes that are indicated by various methods including vertical lines down the left side and different coloured text, in an html editor that doesn't work properly, and which turns it all to mush if I convert to plain text because of line wrapping problems, it's easy to become discouraged.
