mail-fill-paragraph

Fill a paragraph preserving email quoting.  Ctrl-C Alt-q

Email messages commonly use lines beginning with > or # to indicate quoting. This command fills paragraphs in such emails, preserving such quoting, and recognizing that different amounts of quoting serve to separate paragraphs. It uses the mail-quote-pattern and mail-quote-skip variables to determine the permissible quoting characters.

With a numeric argument, it fills paragraphs using the current column as the right margin, instead of the margin-right variable.

The prefix-fill-paragraph command is similar, but uses different rules that aren't as well-adapted for email.

With a highlighted region, it fills each paragraph in the region.
