Hey, actually, your messages prompted my curiosity!  :)  I am using Pine,
and I found the following in the Pine setup configuration menu:

        OPTION: Reply-Indent-String

This variable specifies an aspect of Pine's Reply command.  When a message
is replied to and the text of the message is included, that text
usually has the string "> " prepended to each line to indicate quoting.

This variable specifies a different value for that string.  If you wish to
use a string which begins or ends with a space, enclose the string in

You can also include the sender's name in the prepended string.  The first
occurrence of "_FROM_" in the reply-indent-string will be replaced with
the "username" portion of the address being replied to.

The normal default is "> ".

I tried setting my Reply-Indent-String to "_FROM_> ", and the quotes in
this message are the results.  :)  Well, this Pine feature is not as
versatile yet because it doesn't take the actual name, but hopefully in
the next release... :)
