Forcing Line Breaks
An Internet e-mail annoyance youíre likely to run into is the fact that some e-mail programs (such as Digitalís All-in-One or Netscape Navigator 2.0) do not automatically wrap lines to fit the display. Recipients may complain that they have to scroll far to the right to see all your paragraphs.
Microsoft Exchange Server can be set to force default line lengths to help overcome some of these problems. This adjustment must be made by the Exchange Server administrator and affects all messages and users.
However, the Internet Mail service does not offer any way to automatically break lines with a hard return at a certain length. Instead, you need to consider one of the following workarounds:
Break lines yourself by pressing Enter where you want the break to occur.
Use WordMail as your e-mail editor and a macro that inserts hard returns for you. An example of such a macro is included on the CD for this book.
Use MIME with USASCII for your message format. However, the recipient may see an = character at the end of each line where a soft return is detected; and this method may not work for all recipients.
Use UUENCODE with USASCII for the message format.
