This works well, as I mentioned previously, but I've just noticed an
unwanted side-effect. When I choose to use a reply template for a
folder, the default template is empty, whereas a normal, un-templated
reply defaults to containing the quoted original message, which is what
I'm used to and would like.

Now I know that I can edit the template to have the same instructions,
but I have to do that for every individual template that I set. Is
there any way to do it once and have it apply everywhere?

Cheers, Dave
