Because they simply do not understand, and the software they
use (usually Outlook) has ALL the wrong default settings.
Bashing MS gets old quick, but in this case I do not understand
why they have never fixed that in all those years. Must be
specifically to annoy the long-haird Unix techies, I'm sure,
because I cannot think of any other reason to leave the
default settings against all written and unwritten rules.
Ofcourse there's QuoteFix now and that helps a lot. Perhaps just
force the lusers to use QuoteFix (see Google).
