...there are a number of free utilities one may download to remove those annoying >>> signs (as well as the solid verical line in OE).

However, the following trick from the Gnomies over at Lockergnome.com will do the trick too.

'...Lockergnomie Davis Straub (co-author of the best-selling book, Windows 98 Secrets) told me about a killer trick for a major Outlook 98 & Outlook Express annoyance.

'Have you ever seen those solid lines to the left of your reply text in HTML formatted messages? Here's Davis's way to get rid of them: 'after you click 'Reply' and get the vertical line(s) on the left, move your text cursor to the spot where you want to insert a response and press 'Enter'--this will extend the line.

'Next, click the 'Paragraph Style' button on the OE format bar (notice that there is a dot next to normal). Click 'Normal' and the lines will DISAPPEAR!

'Be sure to check out http://www.davisstraub.com/secrets/ for the entire OE chapter!'

Cheers !!!
