format=flowed has since its support been our default when not sending HTML. It seems that this is now disabled by default, at least in 1.5.0.x. mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed is false by default.

This was a great feature, esp. for recipients being able to wrap however they want, and it's now effectively gone. Why it is off? Accident or intentional? I haven't seen a bug for an intentional change.

Mike, do you know anything about this?

lxr says it is still true by default:

I'll try this under Linux, but with Win2K, creating a brand new profile with 1.5.0.7 and no extensions yields the expected settings for both f=f 
preferences:
  mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed = true
  mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support = false

I was stupid, not realizing that I am using the SuSE 10.1 version of Thunderbird. It's their enigmail which sets this to false.

/usr/lib64/defaults/pref/:
enigmail.js:pref("mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed", false);
mailnews.js:pref("mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed", true);
