In reading the exchanges in the Mozilla forum above, I found a link to a
another thread that revealed a way to configure Thunderbird so that the
"long line" problem is nipped in the bud. I will try it later:
 thanks for the info!
 so the msgs you send in html do NOT ever show this problem?
 i was actually looking for info about the last part of that example.
[*blush*] i was VERY unclear ... here's the actual question i should
have asked in time  above ...
was "format=flowed" in the source anywhere at all?
 from reading thru the forum, i think that some of the persons you
are emailing to are running email clients that do NOT handle
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Plain_text_e- ... t.3Dflowed
you can disable YOUR use of format=flowed by doing this ...
that will bring up the about:config pref editor window
- enter "flowed" in the filter box
that will filter out everything EXCEPT the format=flowed prefs
- here are the prefs that you should see ... [they should both be UNbold]
mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support = false
mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed = true
- if you rt-clk on each one and select "toggle" they will flip values.
you want them to be thus ...
= 1st to be TRUE
= 2nd to be FALSE
- close the about:config window by clicking the "x" in the upper right
corner of that window [yes, it has no close button! [*grin*]]
- exit tbird
- restart tbird
- send a plaintext test msg with a few long lines to one of the folks
that have been returning your msgs with those nasty long, long lines and
see what the result is.
 this bug ...
- wrapping of quoted flowed (f=f) lines disobeys limit for chars per line
... seems to be related to the problem you are seeing.
hope that helps,
