Outlook on the web (Office 365)

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.
