No, using a quote string like the > character that starts each line of
your text quoted in my reply.

If you are using Gnus with Emacs, Shift-F will do the job.  With other
mail interfaces (e.g. rmail), the key sequence will be different. The
Emacs tutorial on reading mail will answer the rest of your questions.
However, you may be looking for the wrong thing- you do not put
something in your .emacs file to include quoted text in your replies.
