It's part of mail-indent-citation (in sendmail.el):

    (save-excursion
      (let ((end (set-marker (make-marker) (region-end))))
        (goto-char (region-beginning))
        (while (< (point) end)
          (insert mail-yank-prefix)
          (forward-line 1))))

mail-yank-prefix is "> " in this case.

This assumes you have the block of text marked as region.
