Re: Word Wrap Please

Subject: Word Wrap Please....

A lot of relatively new (or at least newly verbal) members have forgotten 
turn "word wrap" on in their e-mail software. This results in their messages
to the list appearing as one continuous sentence which you have to scroll
left to right though in order to read.

Usually, when I see a message like that, unless I'm familiar with who posted
the query and the subject line is really interesting, I just skip it - the
horizontal scrolling just isn't worth the bother.

Ergo, if you want to reach the maximum number of readers possible, please
make it easy for us to read what you write.....turn word wrap on. All email
software has the option.

I was aware that my messages when read on the web are like a mile long. I didn't know what to do about it. There is no 'word wrap' option with this email 'service' and I am only using it because my Hotmail is crappy (hotlinks don't work most of the time).
I assumed my email digest posts were OK. They look fine when I read them. If this one is not please let me know. I will use my ISP mail if I absolutely have to. But, I'd rather not.
Thanks. Any help will be appreciated. I certainly want to do things right because I love this list.
