This is something different. A good client removes the signature from the
full quote (not the whole quote ;-). Mine does it and I remember that
Outlook Express did it as well. As long as you just take what you get as a
given you will get broken programs. Complain to the manufacturer if you
want a change in the program you use. Yes, it matters.

You can still refrain from that yourself. That cuts the whole thing
*extremely* well. e.g. if you just quote their last answer and snip what
they quote *they* don't have a chance to build up a pile of quoted text.
You are not forced in any way to "requote" their quote.

Wrong. The issue occurs no matter which way you add the signature, be that
client or gateway (=MailScanner) or manually.
