In Mozilla Thunderbird there are three options when replying to an email:

  • start my reply above the quoted text
  • start my reply below the quoted text
  • select the quoted text
To change your preference:

  • Click Tools and select Account Settings
  • Click into the section for the account you want to modify
  • Click Composition and Addressing
  • To the right it says "Automatically quote the original message when replying"
  • Check the box and then select your preferred option from the list below the checkbox
  • To save your changes click OK
