We've had this discussion already :-) and I've been doing so for,
what, twenty-five years by now. Any real mail program should
what, easily
be able to recognize my or any other character as a quote regexp.

Fyi, knode, pan and Thunderbird don't recognise it.

And FYI, Claws-mail can recognise it. In Preferences, there is an
option "Treat these characters as quotes"

I wonder if TB might have that too - I have definitely seen such an
option somewhere, just not sure if it was in TB.

I was more thinking of it being built-in - having to configure it
explicitly is, well, a bit backward.

Alpine recognizes it partially. It seems to work in the viewer but not in the composser.
