I use Thunderbird. Tho after years of using Outlook98, there are still
a few key stokes that simply do not work. Like ctrl-d to delete a
message. Not being able to edit a message I want to save is annoying.
But overall, t-bird works for me. With my 'net connection, I don't care
how awesome GMail is supposed to be, it's still WebMail.
I installed a plugin called QuoteCollapse. Works nicely.
I don't care if someone top or bottom posts. The important thing is
that they post. But trim all the footer crap.
paul [and yeah, I prefer bottom posting because if I want to save a
message for posterity... ]
It is impossible to make anything foolproof
because fools are so ingenious.
