Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Released
Friday October 31st, 2003
The Mozilla Foundation has just released Mozilla 1.6 Alpha, the first milestone of the 1.6 development cycle. Amongst its other enhancements, 1.6a features many Mail & Newsgroups improvements, including vCard support, an option to remove mail from a POP server after x days and a preference for placing the user's signature above quoted text when composing an email or newsgroup posting. For more information, see the Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Release Notes. This latest release can be downloaded from the mozilla.org Releases page or directly from the mozilla1.6a directory on ftp.mozilla.org.
Update: The original Windows builds did not contain the Personal Security Manager, which enables encryption for services such as HTTPS and secure IMAP. This error has now been corrected and new builds are available. Windows users who have had problems accessing secure Web pages or using other secure Internet protocols should re-download.

Blame Microsoft for this and many other examples of bad email etiquette that have since somehow become 'business convention'.
I don't think there's even any way on Outlook (Express) that lets you bottom post, certainly the email reply format Outlook uses (it uses the same style for replies and forwards) doesn't encourage proper quoting.
