Allow properly formatted inline responses
Inline quoted responses: In both Outlook web app and Outlook desktop application, there's no easy way to respond to a quoted message inline. There are times where a point by point response is the only way to clearly respond to an email but currently there's no way to break the blue line that delineates the quoted text (in previous versions of Outlook you could) and attempted workaround are not guaranteed to look the same for the recipient as the sender. This means you either can't respond inline or if you do have no clear formatting difference to separate quoted text from response, which can make it easy for the recipient to miss important text.
Please fix the clients to allow clearly formatted inline replies. If necessary, make it an alternate reply method to be used when necessary: reply/reply all/reply inline/reply all inline.

it's absurd that this is not a feature already. i wish my institution would be more flexible with the required software; i'd gladly use something else from 20 years ago

This is a very significant missing feature. Definitely enough for me to migrate to another solution.

This would be very useful for programmers that need to deal with open source projects!

we turned from google here. this was one of the biggest problem of my user base
it is annoying highlighting the replied text with yellow. google does this autmatically...
