About my health, top posting vs bottom posting, and Ubuntu forums

I'm actually looking at Thunderbird right now, no real reason why other than the fact that I already use Firefox, just decided to give it a look. Due to the dementia factor I'll have to say that IMHO it seems like an incredible waste of time.

How much time is available for me to waste? No one knows yet but, whether it's 6 months or 6 years, could the time be better spent? I always try to be polite and cordial in my messaging wherever it's done but apparently that's not quite enough :^(

        Yahoo Mail webmail top posts signature and quoted text*. You can disable
both, or use a proper mail client for your Yahoo Mail, or use a
different webmail account.

      As far as I know, Yahoo Mail wants payment before it allows users to use
anything else than the web interface.




    I would look into Zimbra Desktop.  It is a proper email client and I
    believe it allows you IMAP access to your free Yahoo account.  The
    reason is that Yahoo bought Zimbra a few years ago.  Yahoo has since
    sold Zimbra to VMWare, but I think Zimbra Desktop still provides
    IMAP access to free Yahoo mail.  Zimbra is free to download and
    use.  I used it until recently (not for a free yahoo account).  I
    found it to be quite a nice product.  I ran it on Lubuntu - but I
    recently noticed that there is no 64 bit linux version.  However, I
    ran the 32 bit version on a 64 bit machine without any issue.  While
    I didn't test it, I do remember Yahoo Mail as being one of the built
    in account types that Zimbra automatically sync with.  (I am not
    affiliated with Zimbra or Yahoo).


    Good luck
