I use gmail. Other gmail users can take my email message to them, and insert their answers to my questions wherever they want in my original message, and then change the font color. It is very nice, but I can't figure out how I can do the same things from my end? I just went through all SETTINGS and I don't see a way to do this. As my gmail is now, I don't have access to type in an email message I received. What do I need to do so that I can?
When you reply, you're _probably seeing something like this in your reply window:
That little icon indicates that the message you're replying to is being quoted and will be added to your reply, but that since you probably don't want to edit it, it's folded up and out of the way.
If you click that little icon, the quoted text will expand and you can edit it just like any other text you might include in your message.
