Thanks. That didn't quite work, as exists is not a recognized function
for me. Also, I noticed that paragraph-start is global for mail-mode,
so any changes were 'permanent'. So this is what I have, which seems
to work so far:

(defun my-mail-mode-hook ()
  (auto-fill-mode 1)
  (abbrev-mode 1)
  (make-local-variable 'paragraph-start)
  (if (not (boundp 'my_mail_paragraph))
      (setq my_mail_paragraph (concat paragraph-separate "\\|.* wrote:$")))
  (setq paragraph-separate my_mail_paragraph)
  (setq paragraph-start my_mail_paragraph)
  (set-fill-column 70))
(add-hook 'mail-mode-hook 'my-mail-mode-hook)

Any further suggestions welcome!
