    What I’d really like to know is how to completely disable the standard Gmail reply with tiered emails, goofy purple font and a weird one-line header.

    I use Outlook + Gmail for Business for work and it really breaks the professional tone when the format changes this drastically between responses. Honestly, this format is unprofessional to begin with.

    The aggravating thing:
    I can duplicate just that by hitting Forward and changing to Reply. It should NOT be a difficult fix to code.

    Go to Gmail Setting > Labs and enable “Quote Selected Text”. Save and then refresh Gmail’s window.

    Unfortunately, Google, in their lack of wisdom, have retired Quote Select Text.

    Quote Selected Text is still in labs but no longer works. Gmail for some reason wants to force us to repeat the same text over and over and over and over with >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> They must have invested in the > We group emails. We do not need to repeat more than an occasional quote. Gmail… dumb in this case.
