While I do appreciate the information you provide, I must also say that
there are times when you push the crotchety curmudgeon routine too far.
This is the second time you've bitched at me for the slightest of
slights. I don't particularly appreciate being labeled an "idiot" merely
because you, and you alone, had a little trouble reading one email
message. Being knowledgeable on a particular topic does not entitle you
to behave rudely. People won't think you're an idiot, they'll think
you're a prima donna. Lighten up a bit, Spanky.

I had a look at the original mail using several email clients: Outlook,
Gmail, Yahoo, and web client that GoDaddy provides. The text wrapped
correctly in all cases. From this I conclude that the problem is on YOUR
end of the email chain, Olin. You should figure out why your server or
client is mangling other people's email, instead of blaming the problem
on someone else.

That said, the Yahoo client *is* pretty lame. I don't often use the
Yahoo client. Occasionally it is convenient, but only if I'm checking
email from somewhere other than my regular workstation as was the case
when I sent the message about the eagle libraries.

Actually at least one other person independently did too.

That doesn't mean much.  It's a lot like overclocking a 20MHz PIC at 25MHz.
You probably get away with it most of the time, but when it doesn't work
it's not the PIC's fault even though it works on all other PICs at hand
except that one.

Someone else mentioned that it is possible to send wrapped text with the
Yahoo client.  You might want to look into that setting.
