Using GMail daily I hadn’t noticed the item Create a document in the menu before yesterday, I decided to try it out and I really like it. The function allow you to turn an entire conversation into a document which is stored into Google Docs with the push of a button.
The quoted text contains all the included markup, altough it doesn’t include the sender details, it removes all the quoted text it recognizes. What it doesn’t do is truncate the text below the “sig dashes” (“signature cut line”, “sig-marker”, or “sig separator”), which is what I expected.
I create many post based on conversations I see on mailing lists, or other place. This feature makes it easier to collect all the text of the conversation, as the sender is not included it is necessary to through source text to attribute the quotes to the correct person.

Remote host said: 552 5.2.2 User over quota m24si4251221waf [RCPT_TO]
It naturally annoyed me that I was not warned that I was outgrowing my mailbox.
Today I’m absolutely and unequivocally over the quota once allocated to me:
And it doubt that I shall reaching that limit any time soon, although I am still unwilling to subscribe to high volume the current count reads:
Over 7460.019087 megabytes (and counting) of free storage.[*]
I’m also glad to see that they removed the obvious lie:
“[…] so you’ll never need to delete another message.“
- GMail frontpage (only visible when logged out)
- This is obviously an average, or so I assume.
