I have tried to find a guide but not had any luck so excuse the dumb question.

I can post a new message. But how do replies work. Whats the secret so you can reply at the right level? Do you have the leave the body text in? or do you do something with the subject line

thanks

A key factor is the answer to questions "what mail system are you using"
and what you mean by "level"?

Your message headers don't clearly state it, so I'm guessing outlook,
b/c your message went through exchange server.

http://www.adlerbooks.com/reply.html provides some general information.
I'm sure there are better examples but I can't put my hand on
anything better at present. Note however, "slim" is set to reply to the
LIST by default, not the sender.

As to replying to the "right level", well, reply to each exact message
on which you have direct comment or questions - quoting useful text that
relates to your comment or question. It is useful and polite to quote
what is relevant and delete whatever is not relevant.

Someone who knows outlook can comment on that. And if you don't have
outloook you'll of course have to better describe your mail system.
