For newsgroup posting, it is best to configure your OE newsreader to
post in plaintext, not html.
That configuration is in OE/ Tools/ Options/ Send tab - News sending
format - check the radio button Plaintext, not html.
For newsgroup replying, it is best to trim and contextualize, not top
news.newusers.questions -- Quoting Style in Newsgroup Postings - This
document is a description of the traditionally accepted "quoting style"
in Usenet newsgroup postings.
Since your newsreader can't be configured to handle the placement of a
signature automatically at the end of a trimmed and contextualized post,
you would need to disable OE's autosig, unless you were using OE
The autosig function is one of the 'features' of OE which some people
feel 'forces' them to top post. OE's design was 'thinking about'
corporate email TOFU [top post full quote under] - not proper trimmed
and contextualized news posting - and OE was never upgraded to be
configurable to both autosign and to also put the signature at the
bottom where it belongs after a trimmed and contextualized reply.
