Ok. So as far as top posting goes it is a bit confusing. When you reply, and are composing your message, the original message is shown below the reply area. However, when the reply is sent the original message is on top of the reply.

In any case this is not the behavior I wanted. I would like to see the message quoted on top and then be able to inline edit the quoted text to reply to specific portion of the email. Is there an option to set this? 

I will try Blue Mail next. Thanks.
