Ah, right. Yeah, the digests are a stupid concept, and make it fairly
much impossible to do the right thing. I keep meaning to disable them

Also, please make sure you trim your citations appropriately. When
replying, you should *only* include as much of the previous message as
is *absolutely* necessary for context. You included *everything* that I
had said, which was far too much.

With a decent mail client, you should be able to just select what you
want to use as a quotation, before hitting 'reply'. And then your new
email editing window should include *only* that, saving you the trouble
of editing out the bits you don't need to repeat.

And make sure you put your own response *below* your selected quotation.
