The last I checked, cursor keys worked in Outlook just fine without  
any third-party hacks, so there is no reason for top-posting just  
because the cursor happens to be there. It's a bit like crapping in  
your pants because that's where your arse happens to be.

When it comes to malformed emails, Outlook merely encourages bad  
habits and third party hacks merely change the behaviour it  
encourages. It's still quite possible to achieve more or less the  
same results either way if you have the will.
