Because it's good form and a common courtesy in e-mails and helps greatly to connect your post with the post to which it refers. Quoting also distinguishes one person's contribution from another's and makes for a professional appearance to the email.

It's also good form to clean up the quoted text and strip the footers to include _only_ the text you're referring to.

Conversely, not-quoting or improperly quoting tends to make an e-mail indecipherable and more likely to attract unfavorable attention during moderation.
