my ol' exmh setup creates ~/@ when doing repl. 

but keep in mind i have it hacked where Sedit repl with external editor
is replaced with pure "xterm -e repl ..." [doesn't suffer from the
multiple concurrent reply nor reply window lost on exit problems btw.]

$ pwd 
$ grep -B 2 -A 5 '@ by default' extrasInit.tcl 
    Preferences_Add "Quoting" \
"     The following options control how exmh writes to the quoting
file, @ by default.  This file contains a version of the message
replied to that sedit or other editors can use to quote.  Currently
there are two basic choices for the quote file.  It can either be a
symlink to the original message, or it can be a composite message
built by only including some types of a MIME message after
type-specific processing.
$ head -4 quote.tcl 
# Quoting support for exmh.  These functions center around the
# writing of the quote file, which is a pseudo-copy of the message
# being replied to.  The quote file is usually read by the editor,
# sedit or other (I use XEmacs), and processed more completely.
