Yes I see that. I don't use that archive I normally use gmane...

However that is probably down to whatever mail program you are 
using to post with. Is it a web client or a full blown thick client mail 
tool like Thunderbird?

Whichever, it probably has an option to automatically wrap sent text
and I suspect you have that turned off. A good value is usually 
around 70 or 80 chars.

FWIW I have the opposite problem using gmail, it consistently wraps 
my text prematurely leaving my paragraphs badly formatted. And I 
can't find where to change the setting!
