Localized Outlook uses a localized "Re".
There are implementations that use Re[\d+]: beginning with the 2nd reply.
E.g.: "Re: AW: SV: Re: original subject"
Re: 2nd reply to the first post
SV: 3rd reply by a Swedish Outlook user
AW: 4th reply by a German Outlook user
Re: 5th (or so) reply
Maybe it's OK to probe if the original subject is part of the reply.

"Quotes" in bodies are not standardized. Not all use "> ". I did found:
"} ", ":-", "|".
There also might be reasons not to quote anything of the followed-up mail,
e.g. because the subject contains enough question to answer.
Then there are top posters.

Hmm, I find this test a bit strange. One need to ask a question first,
before one can answer others questions.
