1. From the Inbox folder, select a message
2. Click on the Reply button or Message|Reply to reply to this message, compose
window opens with the original text. At this point, the line break of the
original text looks fine on Win_nt 4.0.  But on Linux, the line break is not
working meaning that the text are displayed in one paragraph.
3. Type some text and Send
4. Read the reply message.
Actual result: The original text is displayed in one paragraph.
Expected Result: The original text should retain its original paragraph format.
I tried both plain text and Html, the result is the same.
This occurs on Linux and Win_nt 4.0
Have not tested Mac yet.

Fenella, can you try this again with a more recent build? Thank you.
Linux Redhat 6.0 (1999-12-21-08 m13)
win_nt 4.0 (1999-12-21-08 m13)
When using the HTML editor to reply, original text has line break. And it also
wrap text to fit window when resizing the window
When using the Plain text editor to reply, original text has line break but both
the original and new text does not wrap text to fit window when resizing the
window. See bug 21458.

Mac (1999-12021008 M13)
I can not re-test this bug on Mac because Mac Reply is broken. See bug 22291.

Seeing the date on this one, I think this was an issue of the editor not
behaving properly last summer. All of this seems to work fine now. :-)
