This example message is NOT examplary of the problem. The problem is that every single line is too wide. Not just the one URL line. I simply can't create an example from here as the formating is done correctly on outbound messages by evolution. Other, bad, servers, create long lines. Again, that, in and of itself is not a problem. The problem is when a bad server sends long lines AND the message contains at least on long unbreakable line (no white space to break on; like a long URL). Then, ALL of the lines in the message are wrapped at the character lenght of the unbreakable line. I know that this is a problem with the sending server. However, other mail tools (netscape, mozilla) do allow for forced line wrapping and that is what I seek. Sorry for beating this to death! Thanks, Dave On Thu, 2003-01-16 at 16:31, Arthur S.

If the email has a long line with no white space (e.g. a long URL embedded in the message) and the message has long lines of text within it then the viewer wraps the lines at the length of the longest "word" (the long URL) rather than wrapping at the width of the viewer display window. What I'd like to see is the viewer to wrap lines at the width of the viewer window and simply cut long words at the specified character count. Is this possible? http://server:80/this/is/a/sample/long/line/that/will/not/wrap/correctly/in/the/email/viewing/window/due/to/this/long/line/with/no/white/space/upon/which/to/perform/line/breaksNot me. I don't want long URLs truncated. I like the example message just the way it is.
