This worked up until Mozilla 1.5. Now the sent message does not wrap unless I click on 'rewrap' before sending it. This is the case whether I am replying to an existing message or creating a new message. I saw one similar bug, but there was no way to add that it was also happening under Windows. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on Reply or Compose 2. Type my message 3. Send message Actual Results: Text does not wrap. I can see this by looking at the message in my sent mail folder, or if it appears on a newsgroup or email list that I have sent it to. Expected Results: Wrapped the text at 72 characters
This is by design. By default, plain text mail is sent as format=flowed. See bug 168420 for information about f=f, including the informative FAQ attached to that bug.
