Coach, Mentor, Developer

I’m Harry Bailey and I help foster tech teams and the humans who help form and fuel them. My work creates better outcomes, more value, happier humans and solid autonomous teams.

My experience as a product owner, business owner, tech strategist and software developer enables me take a team-focused approach. I look to support value creation at every level from pair coding through to business strategy.

Some describe my role as Delivery Coach and some as Agile Coach. My preference is Agility Coach. You can’t achieve agile, instead you should continue to be agile, and so I work with teams of all sizes and experience levels to be better tomorrow than they are today.

Postbox reply header text

You can easily change ‘Harry wrote:’ to ‘On 25/09/09 15:34 Harry Bailey replied with:’ by following these simple steps.

Close Postbox. That’s right, shut it down before you carry on.

Backup and then open your prefs.js profile file which can be found here:

Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Postbox
Vista: Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Postbox
WinXP: Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Postbox

You backed it up? No? Do it now and then carry on.

Now search for the string ‘mailnews.reply_header_type’. Found it? Edit it to the following. Not found it? Add the following…

// Change the reply header
// 0 - No Reply-Text
// 1 - "[Author] wrote:"
// 2 - "On [date] [author] wrote:"
// 3 - User-defined reply header. Use the prefs below in conjunction with this:
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_type", 3);

// If you set 3 for the pref above then you may set the following prefs.
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_authorwrote", "%s replied with");
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_ondate", "On %s");
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_separator", " ");
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_colon", ":"); 
// The end result will be [authorwrote][separator][ondate][colon]

Now you can go crazy with funny reply header text whenever you feel the need.
