I have been playing with Thunderbird lately and I find something really annoying. When you go to reply to an email it will take you to the bottom of the email to write your reply.. I want to be taken to the top of the email, and have the original message below.. Can I change these options on how I want to reply to an email? I haven't searched for the answer yet as I know it will be quicker to get an answer here…June 14, 2009 at 11:59 pm #32058
You want answers? You've come to the right place 😉If you have more than one account, you'll have to do this individually for each of them.Open Tools>Account Settings and click on Composition and Addressing. Check the box 'Automatically quote the original message when replying' (it will already be checked in your case).Under that, expand the options list and choose your behaviour from the 3 options offered.I choose 'select the quote'. When I hit reply, the quote is included in the email, but highlighted. I can locate the cursor at the top corner and click outside the highlighted area, and have my reply appear at the top of the page. Or, if its an email I dont want to add the quote to, as its already highlighted I'll just hit the delete button first, clearing the page.

Gee thanks Dak, I knew it would be quicker to ask you…Anyway when I was changing that setting from "start my reply below the quote" to start my reply above the quote" I noticed another setting that was annoying me....It was also putting my signature under the original message and not under my new message. See the screenshot to see how to change this.July 5, 2012 at 10:18 am #32060
