Quick Tip: Mac Mail Reply Quote

In Mac Mail, when replying to an e-mail, the default action is for it to quote the entire e-mail that you are replying to.  If you want to quote only part of the e-mail in your reply, then the fastest way is to highlight that portion of the e-mail in the original e-mail, BEFORE hitting the reply key.


  1. All of a sudden I cannot put replies inside the copied text. When I place the cursor there it draws a big box with and X in the upper left corner around the whole message and moves the cursor to the end. Never saw that before.
