Hi, I'm trying to help a colleague. He wants to know how to turn off the Chevrons (Prefix for Original Message when Replying) when replying/receiving emails. He uses Outlook, and I have no idea where the option is enabled/disabled.

Can someone advise please ?

thanks

I also assumed that not all prgrams use them, or can enable them.
