1. I was wrong to post this in the first palce - that's nothing wrong with the RPM, it's for both apache and roxen

No, I could not. I do not like line wrapping because it messes up code examples very badly, and also on long topic-threads, line wrapping causes ugly formatting in the form of one-word and one-character lines that make things difficult to read. If you, or anyone, does not like long lines, you should find a mail reader that does the wrapping for you.

I makes much more sense for people who want line wrapping to find a reader that wraps rather then asking everyone on the net to wrap it before they send.

Sorry again, but I think maybe you'd be happier with a reader that did wrapping for you.

True. I was just complaining - bad me :-O

Well I'm not so sure there is anything wrong with it after all, is there?
