Hi Alex,

It sounds like you may want to have something in your Email template that
you send that will set-off the reply in a way that you can filter it on the
inbound side:



Then clip the message on the receiving side. That is pretty much what all
of the systems that I have seen do. It is not my personal preference because
you lose the ability to reference items from a previous update in-line.
