I tend to use 'gq}' to wrap entire paragraphs (or 'gqip' if I'm inside
the paragraph in question), but each to their own.

No, it doesn't, it's a vim builtin.
Something like 'au FileType mail set textwidth=72' in your .vimrc is
nice to have - that does require vim-rt, but you've got that anyway,

My .vimrc has a macro stolen from /usr/share/doc/vim/examples/mail:
" ,kpq kill SuperCite (aka PowerQuote) quote (replacing it by `>')
map ,kpq :%s/^> *[a-zA-Z]*>/> >/<C-M>
Season to taste depending on whether you use '>' or '> ' as your quote
I found 'set comments' in vim the other day, too. It makes editing
Debian changelogs, and other things formatted as bullet-point lists, so
much more pleasant.
