There is no one-step magic button to do this.

Right now what you'd have to do is this:

- Switch the editor to rich text mode (in the menu, or can be set as default in app settings -> composing and sending)
- Paste your text snippet
- Use the "increase indent" icon in the formatting bar (added in 1.15).

Thanks for your help.
But I'm old-school and still write mails in plain text ;-)

Maybe I have to wait for the next version...

Plain text?

Then what's your expectation for this "insert quoted"? What would that do exactly?

Add "> " at each line?

BTW I'm old fashioned too, preferring plain text email, and have lots of gray hair to prove it (maybe it's Android taking its toll on me).

Yes, exactly! The good old "quote style" :-)
... as it Thunderbird does – s. attached screenshots

Together with the option "restyle" (don't know the label in the English version) in the edit menu I'm able e.g. to insert own answers/comments between the quoted text.

Sorry we don't have "insert quoted" for plain text. I'll write it down but can't say when / if this will be worked on.
