OUTLOOK: Prefix for Original Message when Replying

  Furkin 21:02 30 Jul 11

Hi, I'm trying to help a colleague. He wants to know how to turn off the Chevrons (Prefix for Original Message when Replying) when replying/receiving emails. He uses Outlook, and I have no idea where the option is enabled/disabled.
