    Trying to help a friend with their sending on Netscapes e-mail. The body of their message's will not wrap at 76 characters when received at the other end. They (sender) are using the Netscape product and I'm (receiver) using O.E. 6. We've looked at their compose section and it's set at "72 characters" which should take care of it but the body of their text when I receive it scrolls across for an incredible amount of characters (probably in excess of 250 characters). The other weird thing about this is that not everyone receives their e-mails in this long format from this sender. Just a few of us do and those who do, appear to be O.E. users. They are also an AOL client if that might have anything to do with it? Anyone got any suggestions? Is it something within the Netscape software, O.E., or even AOL?

    bigdog55,

    If your friends use Netscape 7, then have them add this script to the prefs.js file:
    user_pref("mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support", true);

    The prefs.js file is located in the *.slt folder:
    <path>\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\profilename\*.slt

    See this page for more details: http://www.holgermetzger.de/efaqmailnews.html#2

    Ensure that they back up the prefs.js file before editing. See Profiles Folder Location for their OS.

    Ramona :D
