Most modern email clients not made by Microsoft will handle the
delimiting properly when you reply to a message. I believe the
convention is that the message is clipped at the lowest sig delimiter.

And it's a recommendation, not a requirement - these are RFC's, after
all, not laws laid down from above. But check out RFCs 2646.4.3,
3676.4.3 and 6, and especially 1036.4.3.2.
