In vim, you don't need to select the text first though - 'gq' reformats
the current paragraph.

As an alternative in Vim, you could try

    :set filetype=mail textwidth=72 formatoptions+=ac

Which will make Vim auto format on-the-fly. Personally, I find that a bit
*too* keen on reformatting things, but probably just because I haven't
got the hang of it yet...

Another nice thing: in vim:

    :set spell spelllang=en_gb

and hey presto: spell check on the fly!
