QuoteFix for Mac2.9.0

01 March 2018

Enables bottom-posting for Mail messages.

What is QuoteFix for Mac

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.

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.

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.

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.

My personal opinion is that whether you prefer top-posting or bottom-posting depends on how long you've been using virtualized communications technology. If you know what a dial-up Bulletin Board System (BBS) is and have used one, you probably prefer bottom-posting. If you fondly remember something called the ARPAnet -- which was created by federal, military, and scientific institutions, not for-profit corporations -- you probably prefer bottom-posting. If hearing the names "Archie" and "Veronica" makes you think of something other than cartoon characters, you probably prefer bottom-posting. If when you think of "The Matrix", you think of a book instead of a movie, you probably prefer bottom-posting. I could go on, but my basic point is, I think the explanation for one's preference is at least partly generational.

The latest version 2.4.4 would not update automatically. Just seems to download the file but then the update fails. Downloaded it then from the website and moved it into the Bundles folder manually, but afterwards Mail would not open at all. OS 10.6.8. Prev versions worked okay.

Quite good but doesn't work when you have a automatically pre-selected signature in your message. You must answer first, then chose your signature. (And sorry for my English !)

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.
