Outlook Express has some settings on the options pages to
send mail in either html or text MIME type.  I'm pretty sure
Outlook has the same - just keep fishing around in the
options and you will probably find it.

Same for the leading ">" - you can specify no character or
some other character too if you like.

Happy Hunting,
