Top Posting in Mutt

27 May 2010

Outlook, Entourage, and Evolution have trained me in work environments to top-post my email replies against my curmudgeonly better judgment.

Now that I'm mostly job searching and sending lots of email from my home account, I've finally buckled to the peer pressure, and configured mutt to top-post my signature in the .muttrc:

set sig_on_top = yes

I don't even frequent those old mailing lists where someone would yell at me for top-posting, anyway. Next I'll likely just dump Mutt and go to a desktop mail client, like Thunderbird.
