Outlook 2007 - new behavior

I have noticed some new behavor in Outlook 2007 lately that I don't understand.  For example:  Yesterday I received an email from someone that contained two icons under the "Sent" and "To" sections of the email.  They are yellow envelope icons. These icons, it seems to me, are acting almost like tabs.  Perhaps they are attachments.  I can't tell.

The particular email I received was a response to one I sent.  By one icon is a caption that says "Message".  When it is selected, the message of the person who sent me the email is seen.  The other icon has a caption that says "Note from Woody".  This is the subject line of my original email.  When I click on it, I see my original message.

I wonder about the behavior.  All of my email does not come this way.  In fact I did some testing and sent an email to myself to see if I could replicate the behavor, but when I send to myself I do not see the tab like functionality.  

Can someone give me further information on the behavior I've mentioned.  I kind of like the "Tab" idea, but don't understand it or how to take advantage of it.

Hi, WoodrowA.

The "Note from Woody" icon is simply the original message appearing as an attachment.  The person who sent you the message either attached your original message intentionally or they have Outlook configured to attach the message when replying.  That setting can be found by

1.  Click Tools > Options
2.  On the Preferences tab click the E-mail Options button
3.  Click the pulldown under "When replying to a message"
4.  You should see that one of the options is to "Attach original message"
