      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.
