I did some searching on this as well since it bugs the hell out of me. I
found some snippy Usenet posts by one of the Evolution devs explaining
how putting the signature above the text you're replying to isn't the
CorrectWay(tm) so that's why you can't do it. (it's a historical thing
- sigs used to have two dashes above them so that they would be
stripped out by mail/news clients since people used to have ridiculous
signatures so if you put the signature above the reply text, the reply
text will get stripped out too)

of course that affects about 5 nerds still using mutt on a sunOS box
someplace and all leaves all of us trying to use Evo to replace Lookout
hitting an Exchange server SOL.
