yes, your msg provides:

graphical and doesn't necessarily show what form it sends. it is *not*
wrapping <80 chars.
This behaviour is correct and according to the rules.
No, old. It is called "flowed text". Your client should cope.
It means that your client is free to wrap instead
to the size of your
local window, be it 40 chars, 60, 80, 200...
I believe that is what I said, his client is *not* wrapping <80 chars.
Which is correctly done.
Be aware there is a maximum line length issue in one or more
of the smtp RFCs. Long paragraphs of text can exceed that
maximum and are summarily truncated. Its rather long, and the exact
number of characters escapes me at the moment, but the limit is still
Microsoft got burned by this some years ago when they started
encouraging the use of this so called flowed text in Exchange.
They fixed exchange to work around this limit but you will still see
occasional TL;DR wall-of-text paragraphs that get truncated in emails.
So its nice when it works but it doesn't always work.
After all is said and done, more is said than done.
