    I want my replies to show up above the message – help please!

    If you’ve recently switched to the open-source email app Thunderbird, you are probably wondering why the reply defaults to below the text. We were wondering the same thing.  To get it back on top:

    • Browse to Tools -> Account Settings
    • For each account, you can adjust settings under “Composition & Addressing”
    • The drop-down box will let you choose “start my reply above the quote”

    Voila :)

    It’s much better… Thanks a lot!

    The only problem is that the signature still appears at the end of the message. Do you know how to make it appear above the original message? I’ve tried the methods mentioned in your Thunderbird – reply above quote doesn’t work article, but Thunderbird 3.0.4 does not have the “mail.identity.idx.sig_bottom” entry.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you very much!!!

    Sorry for my last comment! I’ve just found an option to specify if I want the signature at the end or at the beginning of the answer. Now, it’s perfect. Thanks!

    I’m having the same problem in Thunderbird 3.1.6. Change all my settings to “above message” and “signature below reply” but it still won’t work.

    I’m gonna Google but if anyone knows how to set the mail.identity.idx.sig_bottom in this version – I’d love to know.

    Has the new Thunderbird 5.0 solved this problem?

    Thank you! I have been using Microsoft Outlook Express for the past 10 years. Recently I changed to Mozilla Thunderbird and I got stuck with this issue, very annoying indeed. I’m glad it’s working the way I want now. Thanks!!
