Your mailer isn't wrapping the text it sends, which is actually not
allowed in the standards for email.  We're working on solving this
problem, but in the meantime, you may be able to change the configuration
of your mail software.

I'm not sure of the exact instructions for your version, but try something
like the following (these are for Outlook Express 5, which is hopefully
similar to your Outlook Express 4):
Click Options on the Tools menu
Click the Send tab in the Options dialog
Click the Settings button next to Plain Text
In the Plain Text Settings dialog that pops up, there should be an option
'Automatically wrap text at xx characters , when sending'.  Change the
edit to be 76 characters.

Hope this helps..
