I suspect the Ximian guys will say that the mail clients sending those
mails are broken.  At any rate, what I do in these cases is simply
select the offending text and change the format to Normal (it's probably
set to Preformat).  Then I'll indent the text to make it more clear that

In 1.1 you will get >s for every line when you change the mode.  I
suppose to make the development branch event easier we could probably
change the default mode for long lines to "normal", since broken mailers
seem more common than people that format long lines themselves...
