Hi Randy,

To be honest I havn't looked at stand alone mailers for a long time, I
now use gmail so I can read it at home, at work and while commuting
(which is when I have most time to comment).

I can't actually remember what I used last but it also folded quoted
text (provided people marked it in accordance with the guidelines).
