Here's how I do it:

Put a '>' in the first column of the first and second lines of the block
of text,  The hit C-q.


As an alternative, I have this in ~/.emacs

(fset 'mailind "\C-a> \C-n\C-a")
(global-set-key [C-f8] 'mailind)

Then I can hold down C-F8 for as long as I need to prepend those '>' chars.
