    Default Visually differentiate quoted parts of emails

    Other email clients (Thunderbird, Apple Mail, ...) display quoted emails in a clearly differentiated way. E.g. an email such as this:

    --------
    > original email foo bar
    > another line

    some reply text

    > some more quoted old text
    --------

    displays in Apple Mail with two helpful features:

    * Vertical bar instead of leading > character.
    * Different color font for quoted text.

    You can see what I mean at this random screen capture I found via a Google image search: http://www.birdhouse.org/macos/beos_osx/mail.app.gif



    When all the text is the same color it is especially hard to quickly visually identify which part of an email is quoted text, and which is fresh reply text. It becomes easy to miss part of an email.

    Is there a way to obtain this coloring in Zimbra web client or desktop client? If not can I suggest that feature?

    There isn't a way to do it right now, but you can definitely suggest (and vote) for it in Bugzilla Main Page - Zimbra.

    Ok, thanks. I submitted Bug 50926 – Visually differentiate quoted parts of emails.

    Funny note: Bugzilla itself has this requested feature. I see my fake

    I think this would be very nice to have. I often find myself with messages full of "my replies below in [blue, green, purple, orange]" and people tend to get creative.

    I voted for this also.
