Are you using the gmail web interface? Isn't it a simple matter of removing
parts of the by-default cited text? At least for me this worked flawlessly.

Use fcopy to copy a crontab file or edit the crontab file in one of your
scripts. That said, I'm not sure whether doing unsupervised updates is generally
a good idea. I once had broken DNS server packages hose my entire system via
updates of all DNS servers running in parallel. Sure, untested updates is a
no-go in critical systems anyway.

Best regards,
