I am leaning more toward thinking the problem is web-based e-mail clients, which may use a different
default for how the "reply" command works (and it may or may not be changeable by the user). I don't
use web-based e-mail so I don't know enough about what standards (if any) apply to these clients to
comment. A "standard" client like Outlook, Outlook Express and whatever the standard e-mail programs
on Macs and iOS devices are, seem not to have this problem, if I am understanding what Roger and Joe
and Dan have reported (I think they said they all use web-based e-mail; we haven't heard back from
Bob O. yet).
The more we discuss this, the more I lean toward blaming non-standard software or software
implementation, rather than end users.
