I am also am on some Yahoo groups and they all top post and of course I forget to change from bottom to top and sometimes bottom post there. There is no end to the nasty emails I get for that.  MY solution will be to have two email adresses one a Yahoo and one Gmail.  That's not ideal but should work if I don't forget wich one to use for which group  :-)
