Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text. > Why is top-posting such a bad thing? >> Top-posting. >>> What is the most annoying thing on reply e-mails?On a related note, I am desparate to find a solution for an Outlook annoyance that isn't fixed by Outlook-QuoteFix.
I can set it to use plain text, but that only works for external emails, so I get Rich Text or HTML for internal replies. I can fix this with Format -> Plain Text, BUT: that doesn't insert '>' at the start of each line. Instead, I get a semi-fixed message, but it still has indents instead of quote marks. Argh!
So, I shall continue to juggle two email programs.
