If I may, can I please see if any of you can offer some reactions to the
mail below; I've had no success from the relevant support forums.
I've been puzzling over this for ages ... any help or thoughts
I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird 0.7 (TB) and my html replies cause
problems on an integrated internet / email web forum when I reply via
The posts from the web forum are in plain text, and although the forum
software's web display auto-wraps when people type away without hitting
'return', my html replies to such emails 'maintain' the original wrap of
the web post as being one long line. This means that my html replies
cause the web forum to expand hugely and cause the viewer to have to
scroll dynamically across the screen.
In case it's relevant, I use TB with my chosen html font settings as
default for composition and replies. When I compose or reply in TB,
'body text' and 'verdana' appear in the top left boxes in the compose
So, apart from forcing TB to write to the address in plain text, can I
ask 2 questions:
1) Do you think the problem is completely because the mail/forum
software hasn't been designed to force a wrap on the actual posts it
mails out? I feel it should.
2) How can I work with this for now by maybe adjusting a setting in TB?
I really have tried all manner of things with no success in easily
'breaking' the incoming non-wrap in my html replies. I admit I have been
fumbling in the dark a little with my experiments with the TB settings
in Options and also the Compose window.
Maybe interestingly, I have explored replying from my Yahoo webmail
account and that seems to compensate / autowrap the original emails from
the same web forum, resulting in my html replies appearing as normal
width on the web forum.
thanks for any help to save my head from exploding,
