If I save the message with wrapped lines the saved text message is saved with those lines wrapped. This has actually caused me to have to re-write a program that converts an emailed report to a format which I can easily import into Excel. The problem is annoying, however if I must choose between one or the other, I would choose to have long lines wrap. ------- Additional Comments From shartley 10/19/98 14:39 ------- Additional customer input on line wrapping....... (sorry!)... I remember a little better the problem I had with Netscape 4.5 pr2 line wrapping. I would like it if long lines could wrap without actually inserting newline characters into the message itself. I would also like it if the long lines simply wrapped to the width of the window rather than the line length set in preferences. In other words, if I view a message with long lines and those lines are wrapped to make it easier to read, I would like to be able to stretch the window and the lines adjust accordingly. Also, I would like to be able to save or print the message without the extra newline characters.

I think this bug deals with reading messages, not sending them. So it probably belongs to rhp. M9, though.
Sorry...moving enhancement requests out past B1. - rhp
I agree that this is a post-PR1 bug.
This could be solved by implementing RFC 2646 as in bug 16398. I think I have a fully working version of a libmime class for the receiving part of the RFC, but it still needs some testing and maybe changes in places I don't know of.
format=flowed now works, which is one solution to the problems presented here. Marking this fixed.
