No, there's still a problem.  You'll notice in this message that there 
are ">" symbols in front of your lines and benno's, and ">>" symbols in 
front of Lowell's.  (Some email readers will turn the > into vertical 
bar, but the effect is the same).  Your email program should be adding 
those upon a reply, so that your own message has one less > than the one 
to which you're replying.  Then everyone reading can see who wrote what, 
based on how many ">" or bars precede the respective lines.  Quotes from 
older messages have more of them.

Are you using "Reply-All" in your email program?  Or are you 
constructing a new message with copy/paste?

What email are you using?  Maybe it's a configuration setting somebody 
could help with.
