As Dave alludes to, discussions are much clearer to follow when
responses are composed in “interleaved style”; please follow it

Your email client might make this conventional quoting and responding
style difficult. If so, agitate with the vendor of that program to
support the conventional style more easily; and, until then, switch to a
better client program.
