I require preformat style in most of what I communicate, and
I want control over my line wraps. It has puzzled me
why I can see the email the way I intend when I send it,
but others receive it with a line wrap at random points.
At first I believed it was their client, but when I saw
one of my Sent items mangled this way, I realized
it is purely a flaw of Thunderbird.
The option to fix it is hidden in the config variables editor.
The question came up on Serverfault and they linked in
Disable word wrapping in outgoing messages
Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> General -> Config Editor
Set the preference called "mail.wrap_long_lines" to false
I think this flaw and fix needs to be better promoted, as we may not
be aware our emails are sent in such wacky shape.
