Dumb question (I really don't know) #1:
Is there a reason going around for using only lower-case text in email
Because it is a LOT less obnoxious than all uppercase. However, lack of
proper capitalization, punctuation, and spelling (or some semblance of an
attempt at it), is viewed by many as the sign of a weak mind. Remember
that content on the web and on mailing lists is being archived all over the
Dumb question (Thought I new, but I might not) #2:
When 'Replying' to an email message, an 'Re: ' is inserted at the
beginning of the 'Subject: ' field, does 'Re: ' stand for 'Reply'
Take your pick. In traditional correspondence, RE: would signify
regarding. However, since Fwd: is seen on some messages (signifying
"forward"), Re: could be interpreted as "Reply". The difference is
negligible -- if you are REPLYING to a message, isn't your reply REGARDING
