Apparently it doesn't support bottom-posting either.
IPhone >=3.0, yes. Blackberry, no.
I found this hard to credit so I checked on my daughter's BB. It's true
that the email app strongly encourages you to top-post, but it is
possible to work around it:
1) Copy the quoted text
2) Select the option to not quote
3) Paste the quoted text and continue at the end.
The quoted text is not set off by indentation or leading marks so you'd
need to insert a boundary line.
I acknowledge that this is laborious, but for mailing lists I also think
bottom-posting is important. Of course you could also use your BB for
work-related and one-to-one mail, and use your desktop for list traffic.

Are there (is it even possible?) alternate MUAs for the BB?  I'm
curious, I have BB users, some of whom are quite clueful.

There's always webmail, but of course that won't get you the "push"
feature BB users seem to rate so highly. AFAIK the BB is a very closed
system, but that's basically the end of my knowledge about the subject.
