Teach Thunderbird how to reply like Outlook

While I’ve been a Thunderbird user for ages already, it has taken me ages to get used a bit to the ‘minimalist’ way of quoting or replying in Thunderbird.

For those who haven’t noticed, instead of the detailed information Outlook shows you when you decide to reply or forward an e-mail, Thunderbird by default only gives ‘<name> wrote:’, not even a date or e-mail address.

However, while browsing the web I came across a blogpost by ‘nerd. buy Lamisil online ‘ who links to the interesting Propranolol 80mg buy Clonidine homepage of the ‘ChangeQuote’ extension forThunderbird (up to 2.0 right now). For some reason the extension isn’t listed on the Mozilla website, hopefully enough people will be able to track it this way though.

    However, any way where we can do away with the quote and tabbing of the previous mail? i.e every previous mails will be on the same alignment as the reply message.

    This might be a little off subject, but have you looked at seoclientprospectingrobot dot com? Just wondering if you have any reviews of it, I’m thinking of buying a copy, and wanted to see if anyone had bought a copy yet.

    Just being spawned from Microsoft is one good reason not to use it. Maybe a little irrational but it works for me!

    I don’t like Thunderbird or Outlook, they are simple and plain looking. What I love the most is the Eudora mail.

    Well, Outlook is the email program that I usually use. I got used to it since its the default on Windows, so I guess that this is not applicable for me. But either way, thanks for sharing the information.
