I bet someone here can answer this one. I've been unable to find any forum who even understands this question! I'll put it as plainly as I can.
When occasionally using Rich Text (or HTML) format for composing an email in Outlook Exp 6. The word-wrap can't be made to work.

Even if you change the MIME encoding to "none" from Quoted Printable and the Word-Wrap settings become un-ghosted and available to ask for a word wrap at say, 70 characters, it doesn't seem to make any difference - the word wrap line goes on to over 100 characters across the page before it does a Carriage Return (wraps to new line) - If you then switch the MIME back to Quoted Printable from None, the Word Wrap settings goes back to Ghosted-out and still the word wrap doesn't work. Is Outlook Express not actually capable of doing word wrapping when in Html format? Or is this a bug?

I normally use Plain Text but sometimes I need to put some small jpgs into the text like a publication to illustrate something and this is the best way to do it. It's highly inconvenient to use WORD and attach it to the mail.
Anyhow I'd be glad of someone who knows why this won't set or if there's a way it can be made to wrap.
Thanks
Plado
