Plain text emails do not wrap at 78 characters

3345038 shared this problem 11 months ago

Section 2.1.1 of RFC 2822 recommends a maximum of 78 characters per line.

This is to acommodate a variety of email clients which might not hard wrap lines. See useplaintext.email for more details.

This is the behaviour available in many email clients when composing in plaintext e.g. Gmail which is missing in Mailbox.org.

Would it be possible to add an option to enable this wrapping next to the option to compose only plaintext email?

I would like to suggest adding bottom posting as well as wrapping at 78 characters.


Format=Flowed support is missing as well.


Yes, please implement both bottom posting and text wrapping.
