Re: [Evolution] line wrap in html preview

What happens is indeed that the text is displayed on one long line,
where a scroll-bar appears at the bottom.
I would like it indeed to wrap a the edge of the window, regardless of
the windows-size.
I think in plain-text mails it is a hard-warp, while in the html-wrap
that I would prefer, it would be a soft-wrap.

Is there a setting so that Evolution behaves like online outlook, Gmail,
or I think also Thunderbird and Kmail?

display the email with line-wrap.
It also does not seem to be consistent, as other html-email that I
receive form other people does display correctly.

There is no concept of "line-wrap" in HTML.  The text is formatted to
fill the container it is presented in (whether that be a window width or
a div container or whatever).  As such I suspect that Evolution is doing
the correct thing and the others are artificially imposing some
container on the text.

So, when you say that it doesn't wrap, do you mean that it continues in
one long line off the side of the window such that a scroll bar appears
at the bottom of the window.  Or that that it wraps at the edge of the
window, but that you want it to wrap at 72 characters or something?
