I don't know if there is an option in dpkg or apt, when problems like
these arise, I look in /var/cache/apt/archives for the old versions
which are still lying around as I do not launch 'apt-get autoclean' very

As you're using mutt you could :

add 'subscribe debian-user' to ~/.mutt/muttrc and then reply on the list
with 'L'

You could also set your editor to wrap at 72 characters to avoid sending
very long lines, if you're using vim here is my command that I found
somewhere, stick it in your muttrc (in one line) :

set editor="vim +':set textwidth=72' +':set wrap' +\`awk '/^$/ {print
i+2; exit} {i++}' %s\` %s"
