On this list the convention is to preserve the line that Alan described. 
  This is important because when quoting a conversation in a reply, the 
conversation may be nested:

On X, A wrote:
 > On Y, B wrote:
 >> On Z, C wrote:

The e-mail headers cannot assist with that situation.  (Indeed, look at 
the quote above.  It's now impossible to see that Alan was the person 
who wrote the first bit.)

I too would be grateful if you could preserve those lines.

Cheers,
