Chill you two; you're both right. All this patch does is give the
sample appr0ve command as multi-line with backslashes. I'd say it
does more than just 'direct'; it gives a verbatim example to follow.
But clueless users will still find ways to reply and/or cut'n'paste
And while Roger is right that there's very little that can be done
for the clueless wonders, this particular fix did solve the majority
of my user problems: those who know how to cut'n'paste and cannot
fathom why (and more importantly, where) Outlook decides to
auto-wrap lines. This makes it all a moot point.
(And whoever suggested ignoring >> characters was dead-on for
Outlook/IMS and its bizarre quoting mechanism.)
