Please remember to quote the relevant part of any message you are

Hello Patrick

See, my problem here was the following:
I was replying to de0edf8074f4462a507a12373beed7939f124985 camel redhat com, 
sent Tue, 21 Jan 2020 08:48:55 +0100

The message has two big paragraphs, 8 and 6 lines respectively (plus
three greeting ones), about conditions and actions respectively.
Quoting the full message seems too much.

about the UI in the paragraphs, it could be also a reply to the current
topic of the thread (i.e. we are talking about an UI for message
Thus I just trimmed everything.

Studying it, I can think using instead “Getting a good UI for the filter
messages window so it supports the advanced features we have been

As a smaill sidenote, I would expect pretty much everyone following long

That could also be a biased opinion, so feel free to correct me.

Kind regards
