I like doing that in my .vimrc,  ex :

    augroup Mail
        au FileType mail set tw=64
    augroup END

vim knows when it is editing mail and when it isn't (you don't need to
set the filetype manually) :-).

What does the "+/^Subject:" argument do for you (I read the help part
so I know what vim does with it)?  The first line of the buffer for me
(for this message) is

Hmm,  I just had an idea : maybe you have "vim-tiny" installed which
doesn't have file-type detection and syntax highlighting builtin?
