Blue line in replies and forwards

When replying and forwarding to a message, I get a long blue line next to the original message.

I tried selecting and deleting this line but it still remains there.

How can I remove this line?

Reply / Forward Prefix Line buttonThe blue line is inserted when you have your Reply and/or Forward style set to “Prefix each line of the original message”.

To change your default Reply/Forward style go to;

  • File-> Options-> Mail-> option group: Replies and forwards

When you set this option to “Include original message text”, you’d still be quoting the original message but then without the blue line in front of it.
