Version: 0.18.1-1
Severity: normal

 '(message-citation-line-format "On %Y-%m-%d %T %z, %N wrote:")
 '(message-citation-line-function (quote message-insert-formatted-citation-line))

including "notmuch reply", seem to simply copy the datestring including
the timezone data, it quotes using:

or my local timezone only.
