Replying through the extension popup seems to do a different quoting

Hi, recently I tried a few times to reply to email using the popup, but it seems that when using the extension, the quoting is not consistent with maybe what Gmail expects.

This is an example where I used Gmail itself to reply:

As you see, the quoted text is "hidden" by the 3 dots.

But this is an example where I used the extension to reply to an email:

As you see, the original email is not hidden anymore and it's creating some "noise"


  • Try switching between method auto-detect vs manual add to see which you prefer: https://jasonsavard.com/wiki/Account_sign_in_methods

  • Hey Jason, thank you for the response.

    I remember a while back, I was using the "auto-detect" feature, and I remember I had an "issue", and then, you suggested using the "manual" option.

    I'm curious: what's the difference between the two that affects things? I get a feeling that if I go back to the "automatic" mode, I'm gonna face the same issue as before (unfortunately, I don't remember what it was ?)

  • So auto-detect uses Gmail's official reply logic, the manual add requires me to manually formulate the reply - hence why you are seeing the quoted text with the arrow etc.

  • Are there any other differences except the reply logic between them?

    This is for my own curiosity: any specific reason to have a different option than the default Gmail one? Wouldn't it be confusing?

  • There's a lot of differences, the manual one uses Gmail's API and has more features, you can read them here at the bottom: https://jasonsavard.com/wiki/Account_sign_in_methods

  • Oh wow, a lot of goodies come with manual accounts.

    Just wondering: is it possible to have the same logic for replies and keep all the other nice added features?

    If possible, it would be nice to keep all those nice features while having a consistent reply logic between the two (of course, if possible)

    I don't know how to reproduce Gmail's auto-quoted reply logic, hence why I did my best to replicate it, if you do technically found out - let me know :)

  • Ah OK, good to know, and sure, will keep an eye
