That's what you do when you know in advance there's going to be a
power cut (or a tropical storm, right Chris? :-)

I use that combo too. Put this in your .vimrc:

au BufNewFile,BufReadPost snd.*,.article*,mutt*[0-9] set ts=8 tw=72

That makes vim wrap at column 72 (I also have to use a non-standard tab
setting here at work, hence the ts=8). This is done for all files that
match the specifed glob patterns (also for news postings from trn, for
example). These 'autocommands' are great... Try ":help autocmd" in vim
for an explanation.

PS: you could do with a more discrete .signature as well :-)
