    Thanks, yes I do...

    Since the text wrap=0 also shut off "space stuffing" on send
    in my version (as seen by the raw message on my smtp gateway),
    I'm thinking they have html/text consistent sending bugs.

    So I'll use the "format=flowed,false" in my prefs so
    they don't blow me away with a future fix :)
