    Question Program to fix a maximum number of characters to each line in emails?

    Up until now I have been using a software package called 'eZine Assistant' (CNet Downloads) to format my text emails so that there are a maximum number of characters on every line. However, this program is rather fiddly to use. Is there any other way of hard-coding my text emails so that the lines don't overrun? What do you use?

    Thank you

    Never done it, but if I wanted to it's only a case of simple string maninpulation. I use ASP/VBS, so depending on what programming languages you're familiar with I may not be able to help. There's no point in me posting code that means nothing to you!

    Textpad does this: http://www.textpad.com

    In it, go to Configure >> Preferences >> Document Classes >> Text >> Specify word break at column number. I use 70.

    There's a perl module (text wrap or something like that) that will do it for ya.
