Arg! That means you are top-posing - please use e-mail correctly.
Anyway, in composer preferences / general I think "keep signature above
the original message on replying" does what you want. But this is in
the "Top Posting (Not Recommended)" sub-section. Note the "Not
Recommended". Signatures *ALWAYS* belong at the *END* of the message.
Excuse me for butting in on this thread, but as much as I'm aware of the
'natural-ness' of bottom-posting and its usefulness for long threads, I
believe top-posting is still a relatively common general choice for
emails. While generality doesn't translate to correctness, shouldn't
such a choice be up to the user(s) who are in communication? Doesn't
seem the place of an email client to 'dictate' (in a minor sense) to the
user the right way to send his/her mails.
It doesn't dictate - as mentioned it provides an option specifically to
do it wrong.
Every client should encourage users to use best practices.
