hi, a bit off topic but I wantet to ask this for ages now ;)

Your posts, Not Zed, often do not behave nicely. The lines do not wrap
and are difficult to read - see Attachement.

Why is that? 

Could you try and configure your Evolution to not produce such long
lines? they are really bad to read

thank you

I'll take a stab at that one even though I'm not a developer.  I see that some messages show a "style" of Preformat rather than Normal in the tool bar with buttons for bold, italics, underscore, etc. in composing a reply.   I don't see how to change it while reading, but in replies, you can change the style to "Normal" and it wraps nicely.

I don't know why Not Zed's e-mails are in Preformat style (if that's the case as it appears to be from what I can tell).
