Hello,

It would be nice if there is a possibility to respond to (older) messages like whatsapp and telegram does.

Maybe you could keep the subject of the selected message, pretend a "RE: " and also keep the old message body with a pretended “>” each line.

On top it would be very nice when there is the same behavoir when the contact responds to the message.

Thanks, Benjamin

Sure, answering older messages would come as a natural improvement at some time.

I would really like to be able to reply to a message, I think this will be really useful in groups, but I think replying to a message is actually a subset of the quoting functionality!!! where replying to a messages is full quoting the message, but quoting is more flexible since you can partially quote a message, so you can reply to a specific part of the message.
