Top posting sigs in Thunderbird, SeaMonkey


Yeah, I know, top posting.

For those of us without a choice, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey let us top post above an original email, but it will still append your signature to the bottom. I dislike this, because it looks rude. If your signature contains your thanks and salutations, chances are people won't see it.

Fortunately, we can change it.

  1. Go to Account Settings
  2. Choose your email account from the sidebar
  3. Choose Composition & Addre... (truncation is bad because it...)
  4. Choose "below my reply (above the quote) from "place my signature"

The great thing is this can be defined for different accounts. For example, my newsgroup accounts use bottom posting with signatures in the right place.
