I'm not sure if "displayed header information" is the correct terminology or not, but that's what I'm going with until someone corrects me.
This is not the first time I (and others) have asked for this.
Replying or forwarding e-mail to SMTP recipients completely destroys the displayed header information. See screenshot above.
Replying to an SMTP message (from Notes) converts the displayed header information into a table that displays in Notes like this (see screenshot)
This is how other mail clients converts the displayed header information, and how the recipient see it (below)

Which would you rather get?
To make things worse. Because the Notes Client converts the displayed header information into a table, as you correspond with the other party, the tables from previous replies continue to get extra lines added to it. The results of which are old displayed header information tables that can take up half a page with nothing but line feeds.
This is very annoying and customers complain about it all the time.
