But this is again one of those areas where tastes differ - perhaps a

If I understand you correctly, then such a setting already exists:
select the long line in question, and choose "Preformat" in the
drop-down at the top of the message area (where it normally says...

Yes and no:

Yes, evo can, when *sending* a message, differentiate between long and
normal lines.

No: when I receive a long line, it stays a long line (I can edit
manually, of course) when I reply to a message. Unfortunately, some
significant number of these long lines should really be normal text with
linebreaks, so it could be good if evo could break that (perhaps it can?
I never bothered since I felt it to be the problem of the sender - I
quote as I get it). But it would be BAD if evo would always break long
lines in replies.


This is a long long long long long "Preformat" line in a message so it should not be broken even when I have 
spaces in it, after all that's the joke...
