10000 chars is huge - This is the default setting.  I would expect 
common small paragraphs to respect it, but 70 is what I commonly see and 
it is inconsistent, pretty much your comment are right on the mark. 

see: www.dottedi.biz/images/tbirg_settings.gif

like i say sometime i see paragraphs with lines that rejoin the previous 
line.  this is baffling.  the message you replied with - all wrapped at 
about 70 chars.  i looked through my sent.mail at the original message i 
sent on this topic and it looks good.  i don't generally use HTML 
formatting options with the-list, but when i do in other email 
correspondences the 70 char word wrap makes for a messy looking list.

it makes me wonder whether there could be something happening either via 
my email provider or a the-list configuration which is causing the line 

i don't do much if any customization with email.  this is just another 
swamp to drain - and alligators are everywhere.
