I use Eudora and have no such problem. I just sent myself one as a
test, and the confirmation URL, at 144 characters, is on one line. Even
when I down size the window to force the link to wrap, it's still
clickable. The cut and paste reply line is well below 80 characters, so I
can't see a problem there either. Maybe it's your settings in Eudora?

Mailman is hardly the only system using long tokens.
