Your mail client should provide this, and/or snipping out the
irrelevant sections, quoting the relevant sections, and avoiding
top-posting .. all work well to provide context and readability.

extraordinary examples -- happily the exception.
Because it destroys the logical flow of a conversation.
Why is it uncomfortable to top-post?
