Fair complaint.
Only two possible causes (both have an idiot driving) -
preformatting and tables. Otherwise it would wrap to suit the window of
the viewers choice. A common offender is those obnoxious email "themes"
with a hard screen width set that the idiot driving thinks looks pretty
on their widescreen. Often accompanied by such digital nasties as
animated emoticons and blinking text.(Outhouse and Incredidumb)
I dislike those emails only slightly less than the fascism of pdfs and
powerpoints. At least some of the bad HTML (pre tags) I can fix with

There can be reasons to use HTML in the main body. There can also be
reasons to reply to HTML email with another HTML email consisting solely
of a single bitmap screen-scrape from a wide-screen text document (or an
A1 pdf).

Glad to hear it's working for you now. Organised is eccentric now? (sigh)
