Sorry if I'm wrong, but I think I was referring to something else.
Please look at my current reply (composed using Sylpheed). See how the lines expand to the right to fill the whole width of the message view? You might need to maximize the window to see that. That's what I meant
by "soft wrap", the mail client uses the whole horizontal space to
display the message. True for all mail clients I've ever used. The
replies from Balsa are "hard wrapped", usually leaving some space to
the right.

Dammit, I'm taking a screen shot.

(The screen shot doesn't have any of this text, but the word wrap settings are the same. The jpeg was too big for the mailing list, but you can see it at for a week or so.

What I see *here* isn't what I actually send.  That's bad.)

I get it now. I was referring to the message preview and message window. You were referring to the compose window. Please see my screenshot at . See how my reply from Sylpheed fills all the horizontal space available in the message preview pane?

Also, please notice the wrap for the replies with multiple indentation in this mail. No M$ MUA involved...
