I use Outlook at home (and sneakily here at work to read me personal email),
and use Lotus Notes as my corporate email client. I've previously used
Outlook as a corporate email client as well. I also sometimes use web-based
mail clients. All of these take you down a path to top-posting by default.

Several months ago I didn't know the difference between top-posting,
bottom-posting, etc. I learned to conform here in this list. Elsewhere, I
am lazy and just top-post.

Basically, if I'm somewhere where folks care, I do what they prefer or
what is the norm for the environment. I'm trainable.
