Mail.app plugin for bottom posting of reply text
Authored by: soundsgoodtome on Aug 25, '10 01:48:44PM

while I firmly believe in options and prefs for all users' needs, I don't understand the desire for this feature. it drives me nuts when new replies are below the quoted text, forcing me to have to scroll down to look for the new content. it's inefficient and inconsiderate on the part of the sender.

the exception is replies that are interspersed online among comments. but below the entire previous post? HATE it.

have fun! lol.

Then we won't make you use it. :)

Actually, it's not my preferred choice either, although it ranks firmly ahead of any form of HTML formatted mail in my book.

I'd also like to say that I don't understand why people do this. Often times when I get an email that has all of my text quoted at the top, I just delete it because my first thought is always that the user must've accidentally hit send without typing anything. Then (thank god for 'trash' folders) I realize that their reply might have been below the original text and I go back and dig it out of the trash.

I'm not saying this hint isn't helpful for those who want it, I'm just adding my two cents.
