RE: Dumb question-- text wrap?

        I think it is Lyris that puts in the odd breaks. For all most
every message I get from the list I get the message "Extra line breaks
in this message were removed click here to restore" (I'm on MSOutlook
XP) But I don't get them for off list correspondence. Lets try this you
send the same message twice once to the list and once directly to me. It
can just be random letters with spaces every few characters. If it is
Lyris then the odd breaks will just show up in the list message, but if
it is your system then it will show up in both message.

Subject: Dumb question-- text wrap?

I don't always want to ask my son how to fix things (he has had to work
pretty hard this summer already on this computer).... I notice that my
to the list don't wrap the same way as i send them...Often lines are
in odd places. I looked up in tools....checked options....and saw that
lines are set to wrap at 76 characters. What is standard? I am the one
used this computer most for e-mail...and most of what I write is to the
list. What do you folks have your text settings at?

Since Mary B had a similar problem (although I do like the way hes came
on the digest) I thought I would ask.

Thanks for answering a dumb question,
