Nice utility plug in for Apple's mail client that does quoting the way God intended ... the quote at the top, cursor beneath, as opposed to the default way (cursor on top, quote on the bottom. Who likes to read mail backwards, anyways? Who thought of this stuff?)

Easy, simple install and uninstall if you no likee: http://code.google.com/p/quotefixformac/

Me like!

I agree, dunno who designed the original Mac Mail method of quoting, but it is stupid and I'm constantly forced to do extra editing, moving and clicking to get things the way they should be.

Thanks!

I spoke too soon, it still doesn't work the way it "should."

Now when I reply to an email, I get:

* my signature text

* quoted original message

* Cursor at the bottom

What it SHOULD do is:

* quoted original message

* cursor below

* My signature text

I guess it would be okay if I didn't have a signature, but at the moment I do, for good reason.  So I'm not sure it's an improvement.  Who wants a signature at the TOP of an email?
