If filetype plugins are active[1] vim should "know" you are editing a 
mail and will already set textwidth=72 and use also some syntax coloring 
(ex. quotes and your .sig will show in a different color). 

Additionally I have this in my .vimrc

autocmd FileType mail set spell spelllang=ro,de,en fo+=aw       " spell and autowrap text in emails

[1] they have been disabled by default in Debian, but my .vimrc is based 
on the example in /usr/share/vim/vimcurrent/vimrc_example.vim which 
enables them

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
