i am curious – how do you envision “quoting messages” would work at UI-level?

Maybe it could work this way:

DC hide quoted text of regular mails.
So it can detected (maybe by the “>”).

So now you could show this text in the top of the message simmilar how it shown in the attached screenshot.

If a DC user tab te butten “quote” it could added the qouted message behind the regular text.

Example for the sendet message shown in a regular mail client:
#######################

Yes. And I know a lot of people use it

“>Are you and your friends using Delta Chat”
######################

And this message should be shown in DC similar as in this screenshot

I would add a header anyways so you can click on the quote and then jump to the quoted message.
