This is useful, in fact so useful that I attempt only to fail (and get disappointed) the same action in other MUAs. Especially frustrating when they have their own little “replied-to” marker but lack the functionality :(.

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
