[MlMt] Option to change "reply sentence"

Hi Bill,

Thank you, you stubbed me in the right direction.
As you can see, I tried to change the MmReplyWroteString.

But, %A (= The full weekday name according to the current locale.) and %B (= The full month name according to the current locale.) is in english. I assume that is because MailMates curent locale is english?

Best regards,

Stefan Dorscht
