Yep. My (and many) e-mail editors has a new-message function with (under
Edit) a "paste as quotation" option. I just copied the part of your message
I wanted to quote, including the heading, and started a new message to APD.
I pasted what I had copied as a quotation, so my editor automatically added
all the line leader ">" things. Very quick and easy, compared to cleaning up
a whole digest.
