Sometimes in figuring this out, the following command is helpful:

M-x list-text-properties-at

If I enter this with point (called cursor in some other programs) on
the word 'suboptimal' above, this  is returned:

face                 message-cited-text-face
fontified            t

This tells me that the face 'message-cited-text-face' is the one to
customize if I don't like the looks of the quoted lines.
