User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20041210 and prior versions. As reported in associated bugs 155622 and 274168 there are problems with the wrap text. I have discovered that Mozilla lies about the formatting of the emails that are composed using the Html editor and sent as "Send as Plain Text Only (Recommended)", this is why I submit a new bug. What actually happens is Mozilla inserts line breaks after about 72 characters in the outgoing email regardless of any settings [see tests below]. When previewing the sent emails, or opening them, Mozilla pretends it hasn't inserted these line breaks but if you do a CTL+U you get the real story. After composing an email with the desired line breaks in the correct places Mozilla inserts so many line breaks that it makes a nonsense of reading the text at the other end. Even Netscape 4.7x did not have this problem. Tests performed: From an email composition window do Edit | Preferences | Mail & Newsgroups | Composition; Using the setting "Wrap plain test messages at 0 characters" and "Wrap plain test messages at 1000 characters" - the result is the same. Bugs: 1) Mozilla inserts uncontrollable line breaks in outgoing emails. 2) Mozilla renders emails differently from what is actually received or sent.
