I'd like to request an option for no wrapping in the composition window, but
before the message is acually sent, the message would be wrapped.

In other words, some times I want to compose a message and not see the wrapping.
 But before the message is sent, I want it to be wrapped so the reciepent does
not have a hard time reading it.



Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Compose a new message.
2.  No way to turn off wrapping in the compisition window...
3.  ... and still have the message wrapped before it gets sent



Expected Results:

Add this line to prefs.js:
  user_pref("mail.compose.wrap_to_window_width", true);
If that suits your purpose, please mark this bug:   Resolved|WorksForMe

Be aware of this behavior: bug 233705.

No response from reporter, =>WFM

On rereading this bug, perhaps reporter is actually looking for a way to just 
have the text your typing go on in a single line, without wrapping even at the 
window edge, and with horizontal scroll bar -- but I don't think that's the 
case.  If it is, see bug 262475.
