I don't know how to make Outlook [Express] behave properly by default.  
Does someone have a URL or Usenet post that can point people in the
right direction? Gods know this comes up often enough.

That said, your reply was almost perfect. Remember to include the
attribution _before_ the message ("David Dyer-Bennet wrote" or something
like that; the "Original Message" thing Outlook does is ok by me)  and
cut out the .signature file after it. Basically, anything after the


needs to go, unless you're specifically talking about someone's sig.
