Description

Outlook-QuoteFix can modify MS Outlook's message composition windows on-the-fly to allow for correct quoting and to change the appearance of your plain-text replies and forwards in general: move your signature, use compressed indentation, customize your quote header, etc.

Quoting & Formatting

If you use Outlook as your email client and make use of plain-text messages, you will have noticed that Outlook doesn't exactly feature the most intelligent quoting algorithm; in fact, it's the silliest one imaginable.

The following will probably look familiar...

Now, what is wrong with this email? BUT... It doesn't have to be that way. Outlook-QuoteFix fixes all of the above - and more! The following is an example of how the above message dialog could have looked with Outlook-QuoteFix:

See what I mean?
And the best thing about Outlook-QuoteFix is, there is absolutely nothing you have to do. It's all done automatically. You click reply and Outlook-QuoteFix will immediately reformat the message for proper quoting! No message you send is ever going to look like the one in the example at the top again... And if you get all your friends to use this program, too, such messy quotes will soon become the exception to the rule. And even if you don't, Outlook-QuoteFix will attempt to fix all their messy quotes when you reply to their messages!

No Worries

Lastly, Outlook-QuoteFix will not modify any system files or Outlook files... So there's really nothing to worry about. Just try it out and see if you like it. If you don't, you can always uninstall it... but I'm sure you won't want to ;)
