To be specific, the OP needs "boxquote.el". I have it bound thus:

,----
| (define-key mode-specific-map [?q] 'boxquote-region)
`----

So in Gnus it's "C-c q" on a region in 

,----
| order to boxquote like this
`----


And with things like It's All Text, be aware of "emacs --daemon" and "emacsclient -c".

e.g In my .xsession I have:

,----
| pidof emacs || emacs --daemon
`----

which starts emacs if not already running as a server.

Then one can have a permanent emacs server running and connect to it
from a terminal, script etc. using

,----
| emacsclient
`----

Note that "its all text" requires full path e.g

,----
| /usr/local/bin/emacsclient
`----

The daemon is a feature of Emacs 23 which I pull from the following git
repository

,----
| git://git.sv.gnu.org/emacs.git
`----

All good stuff!
