QuoteFix

2.9.0
01 March 2018

Enables bottom-posting for Mail messages.

Overview

QuoteFix is a plug-in for Apple Mail which enables "bottom-posting": instead of replying above a message (as Apple Mail does by default), it will place the cursor below the original message when you reply to, or forward, a message.

Other features include:

  • removing the senders signature from the reply
  • customized attributions (including HTML and templating)
  • and generally cleaning up replies/forwards so your messages will look good, clean and spiffy

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

QuoteFix has been a godsend for me, allowing me to use Mail.app properly, instead of perpetuating the perversion that is top posting. The software has always worked as advertised, and when I've had minor issues, the developer has been highly responsive. Recommended.

Excellent little Mail plugin. Would be even better if I could optionally turn off the 'quotefix' bit, but keep the rest of the options activated. Yeah I know, that would kinda defy the purpose of the plugin's nature, but it'd work for me.

<Move cursor to the top of document after QuoteFixing>

Looks like this new preferences option in v2.9.0 can now place my cursor at the top of my reply email after QuoteFix runs its course. Thanks, dev, that's where I like to start my emails, rather than below the original message.

Installed it, and Mail crashed just after opening its window. Removed it, and Mail is OK again. Any ideas?

Hmm.. doesn't seem to work on my Mavericks install. Set quote level to 2 and all quotes stay in along with images which should be removed.

QuoteFix is a fantastic plugin that I can't imagine living without. I only wish Mail.app did bottom-posting by default!

I'll skip the beta and wait for a release before installing v. 3, but is there any chance that this version does or will include the option to move my signature to wherever I have asked QuoteFix to put the cursor? If I'm using it normally and bottom-posting, it's fine, but if I override it to top-post, my signature stays at the bottom. And if I turn on Mail's option to place the signature above the quoted text, then QuoteFix is unable to move either the cursor or the signature to the bottom. While I prefer bottom-posting, there are times when it is necessary and/or more appropriate to top-post, and it's frustrating having manually move my signature from the bottom in those cases.

I really dislike signatures polluting the conversation thread. Eliminating the signature entirely would likely be the solution most appreciated by folks receiving your mail. :^)

Snowlprd, maybe you're right and maybe you're not, but in the first place, that comment is entirely unhelpful. Second, my email signature consists solely of my name and my email address. There's nothing "polluting" about that. And in many contexts, identifying yourself in your email is kind of important. So your opinion is duly noted and rejected as irrelevant. Have a good day.

QuoteFix doesn't handle the placement of signatures, nor do I plan to implement it. But perhaps the 'SignatureProfiler' plug-in by Little Known Software can do what you want, although I'm not familiar with it.

Quantumpanda: It's unfortunate that you reacted so negatively to my sincerely-proffered suggestion. Seeing an email signature repeated multiple times in a conversation thread does indeed constitute noise pollution, adding no value to the conversation. Speaking of "unhelpful," I fail to see in what contexts your email signature — consisting solely of your name and email address — is in any way helpful. After all, your name and email address is already present in the email headers and likely included in any quoted blocks as well. Email signatures are almost always redundant and distracting.

Robert: Thanks for the tip. I'll look into that. Snowlprd: I could go point by point and explain all the reasons that your comment was unhelpful and irrelevant. But since I really don't care whether you agree with me or not, I won't waste the time. Suffice it to say that your failure to see a context in which a signature is helpful has zero bearing on my reasons for using one.

QuoteFix Seems to work on Maverick after fixing it with Mailpluginfix.app However when will you update to Maverick & bring an official supported version ? Which versions of QuoteFix work for Tiger, Leopard, SnowLeopard, Lion & MountainLion ? Reading the download Page on GoogleCode doesn't clarify this & you haven't got a History on your Plugin, it would be nice to know which versionsi exactly need for supporting users of older OS X versions.

You need version 2.4.x or older for Snow Leopard. Not sure about Leopard or Tiger. Here's a currently working link for 2.4.16 http://www.macupdate.com/download/49648/quotefix-2.4.16.zip
