Default Change top postings to bottom postings?

As top-posting is the default in OE and as this is a Microsoft newsgroup,
top-posting is the convention here.

PS: Your headers (Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.5512) tell us that
your WinXP computer is NOT fully-patched at Windows Update! Why isn't it?

Top or Bottom?

Or a reg hack:

For XP/SP2 or 3 only, you can control top and bottom posting with this
registry change.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{GUID for the
identity}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0

Right click on a blank spot in the right pane | New | Dword and create a
new DWORD and name it:

Reply At End

To bottom post, set the value to 1
To top post, set the value to 0

I am still using ie6 for newsgroups. Some newsgroups get mad as hell
when
they see someone top-post to a reply. Ie6 always top-posts. Can this be
changed to bottom postings?

Thanks

For MSNews, I usually top post, but I always adapt to the current
circumstance in a thread.

You can use CTRL-End at the beginning of a reply to position the cursor at
the bottom of the reply before typing.
