I.e., common list practice, what I call conversational style. 
Benjamin, I suggest you set Outlook to general plain text responses. 
It's much easier to control. I have not verified this, but Outlook 
should be able to handle quoted material automatically with quotation 
markers. I use Eudora for mail, still, and it does have a non-plain 
text quotation marker which often gets translated to initial > marks.
