Apparently I didn't explain myself very well.

Basically what I wnat to do is snip out stuff from a mail which is the 
previous mail in a thread copied in verbatim.

The best way I can think of doing this is.

1. Work out thread parent of current mail.
2. Retrieve that.
3. Determine if more than n-amount of parent mail is present in current 
   mail in a contiguous block (using n-grams?). 
4. Remove said block.
