I'll repair the one from above so you can see how it should look like:

OE's one is called "Kammquoting" in German, because the quote
characters look like a comb after one additional quote level applied:

A correct two-level quoting should look like

>> foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo
>> bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar foo bar
>> foo bar foo bar foo bar

not like the Kammqouting (I don't know the English term) that OE
frequently produces.

Btw. there are some free add-ons available that make Outlook Express
behave a lot saner. You can google for "oe quotefix", "morver" and
"korrnews".

But then, what do I know - I almost never used this app :-)
