    When composing a text message should you have 72 characters or 76?

    This happens when composing an email. The text stops at the center of the email. Does not go all the way across the body of the email. Recipients ask me why the texyt stays on the left side of the typed message.I hope this explains the question better. Thanks

    In just what email program are we talking about here?
    Also are we referring to plain text or HTML based email?

    I cannot really understand the issue just yet.

    I'm using the sea monkey mail program and plain text. Go to edit-oreferences-undercategory-click composition. It shows 73 charaters. Is that what it should be in plain text emails?

    That should be 72 characters not 73 as I typed. Sorry.
