Replies Append to Bottom in Thunderbird
philblog tells about how Mozilla Thunderbird has its default reply position at the bottom of the email.
It bugged me too. Here’s what he said about it:
Apparently replying at the bottom of an e-mail is not an acceptable practice because I seemed to have either confused, annoyed, irritated, or all three, several people by doing so. After a few e-mails and instant messages from people I figured I would check to find out if there was a way to change this. After a brief Google search I found the solution to setting the reply position on e-mails to the top instead of the bottom.
# In Thunderbird: Go to “Account Settings”
# Select “Composition & Addressing” for the account in question
# Check the checkbox in the Composition group that says “Automatically quote the original message when replying”.
# Once the combo box below is enabled select the option “Start my reply above the quote”
That did the trick. If you use Thunderbird, or are going to try it: do this!
