Quote and reply

You can quote a previous message, either replying within a topic or to start a new topic.

The first line of the reply contains a permanent link to the quoted message. Zulip automatically turns mentions in the quoted text into silent mentions to avoid unnecessarily mentioning someone twice.

You can use quote blocks when quoting emails or other non-Zulip content.
