Unfortunately, he's using the yahoo web mangler--errm mailer, and it is
absolutely horrible that way.  

About the only thing you can do is manually insert 

he said 
blah blah

she said 
blah blah

they said 

more blahs.

If at all possible, use another mailer.  If not possible, then at least,
please post inline.  That is, answer point A below point A, point B,
below point B, like a conversation. 

Bottom posting, without trimming, can be as bad as top posting.  

In my humble opinion,  this article gives a good illustration of the
difference between good and bad posting style.   It's written by a
friend who runs a few yahoo mailing lists.
