You mean 72 characters/line? This doesn't work all the time, when
replying or coping something it can happen that I get never ending
lines. Usually people wish to get an auto-break after character 72.
I'm using Evolution, but to be honest, Mozillas are better Mailers, but
no native Linux mailers, anyway, also those mailers know the never
ending line issue.
I used several mailers, an eccentric extreme might be Wanderlust for
Emacs, for this mailer there never is a line issue, but well, I'm sure
you won't use Wanderlust.
Btw. take a look at the emails headers by viewing the source, usually
there is an entry for the mailer.
I suspect you get something similar to this
Perhaps you need to edit the preferences from 80 to 72 characters.
