I apologize in advance if I jump in in what might sound like a
knit-picking manner.  However, if this "fix" produces messages like the
one above, where all the usual mutilation of Outlook regarding quoting
and wrapping the text is clearly visible...

it's not a fix :-(

Giorgos-- it would be reasonable to assume that JJB was using the tool he speaks of, only that would not be correct; oe-quotefix doesn't work with Outlook itself:

[ Only someone condemned to support Windows users would want to understand the relationship between Outlook and OE in more detail, so suffice it to say that the two are much more different than one might expect from the shared name. ]

Anyway, the oe-quotefix utility actually does do a pretty good job of fixing the braindead quoting of Outlook Express. But I'd much rather use Mozilla than Outlook from the standpoints of both security and only mildly broken mail composition by comparision. But then, I'd rather use than Mozilla. For that matter, I'd rather use Emacs with fill-mode on and fill-column set to 76-- for two levels of quoting and a space to fit into 80-cols without wrapping-- to actually compose ASCII text than anything else.

oe-quotefix behaves very much like what M-q (fill-paragraph) does in Emacs.
