You can quote all or part of a message when you reply to it. A quote is prefaced by the name of the original sender and, depending on your preferences, the time the original message was sent.
Your preferences also define where the cursor is placed (above or below the quote).



Quoting part of a message
To partially quote a message in your reply:
1       Open the message to which you want to reply.
2       Select the text you want to quote.
3       Choose Message > Reply.
4       Prepare and send the reply as usual.
You can type your reply above, below, or interspersed within the quoted text.



Quoting the whole message
To quote all of a message in your reply:
1       Open the message to which you want to reply.
2       Choose Message > Reply Special > Reply with Quote.
3       Prepare and send the reply as usual.
You can type your reply above, below, or interspersed within the quoted text.

If you want to direct your reply using menu commands such as Reply Sender, rather than sending it to your default reply recipients or updating the reply envelope, you must select the text you want to quote. You cannot choose both Reply with Quote and a directed reply menu command.



Specifying quoted text formatting
Quoted text is normally formatted in a special way, to differentiate it from your reply text. By default, FirstClass formats quoted text as black text on a gray background, as in this example:

To change the way quoted text is formatted by default, specify the font attributes you want at "Quoted text" in your preferences. You will always see quoted text in this style, no matter what the sender's preferences are.
