Solved Cursor move to bottom of page when replying to email

November 16, 2013 at 07:38:06
Specs: Windows 8.1
When I reply to an email the cursor is @ bottom of page instead of top. If I reply to an email it ends up @ bottom of page & is missed because people expect reply to be @ top of page. Thank you for your time & have a blessed day.

I'm not familiar with Thunderbird and the sorting tricks look different to most other packages. Have a look through this lot - you should find your answer there somewhere:

You can easily move the cursor to the top or anywhere you want it to be by clicking with the mouse where you want it.

Also it depends what email software you are using. Some of them put the cursor below the original text on purpose. The reply does not necessarily have to be at the top. In fact it makes more sense if it's at the bottom.

Yes, we really ought to know what particular email you are using, there are so many and all different.

Sort order is often set (ascending or descending) by clicking the email name bar at the top. The order can be set independently for incoming and outgoing emals.

Thunderbird email is what I have now since I recently got windows 8. I'm thinking people would prefer to see the reply right away instead of having to scroll down through old messages first. How do I go about changing the settings? Thank you for your time & expertise.

I think that the order that they see the messages will depend on how thier email has it setup....not necessarily how yours is, however

Menu > View > Sort by > Date > Descending/ascending

I am certain mikelinus is spot on. Your recipients sort order depends on their own preferences and settings and is not affected by anything "you" do. Yours can be whatever you choose. After all, they don't get your page of emails at their end - they come from all over the place.

I happen to prefer new mail to be at the top of the pile. A friend thinks that is all wrong and upside down. We both go our own way and the sort order is always exactly as we each prefer it, for both incoming and outgoing email.

Thanks Guys, your information sounds right on but it's not working for me. I'm clicking on my email, then view (menu not an option) then sort by then date and ascending/descending. Nothing changes. On the sort by option I've tried all of them & still nothing changes. What am I doing wrong? Thanks again.

Thanks for the link. When I go to it I'm told this " might void warranty. May be harmful to the stability and performance of this application." Basically says if I don't know what I'm doing then not to do it. I also am reading about threads which I have no idea what they are. I have a computer class I'll be going to tomorrow AM & perhaps someone there can assist me further. I appreciate your time. Thank you.

This looks what you are looking for and is a lot more straightforward. Not as super simple as in other email packages though:

Didn't spot the bit about warranty (etc) in the other link but it sounds like a general warning to save their backs. I'm darned sure Thunderbird has no warranty.

I did like it said but no change. Should I put it back to the original?

Go back and make sure the change you made is still there, then check again to make sure the sort order hasn't changed. If it's still the same then yes, always best to put things back the way you found them if they have had no effect.

Would like to help but it seems you need someone who at least "uses" Thunderbird. Maybe someone else will see this post and be able to throw some light on it.

Got the answer & it worked! Thanks everyone for your help.

1. Start Thunderbird.

2. Click Tools, Account Settings.

3. Click Composition & Addressing

4. Click that first pull-down menu, then choose start my reply above the quote.

5. If you have multiple e-mail accounts, repeat steps 3 and 4 for each one.

6. Click OK and you're done.
