Thunderbird has the best of both worlds when used with conforming email 
clients (Outlook is non-conforming). It wraps the lines, with a trailing 
space on re-wrappable lines, and includes a special clause in the 
headers, as defined in RFC 3676, which tells aware clients that they can 
reflow.  Legacy clients use the line wraps from the sender.  RFC 3676 
aware clients, like Thunderbird, re-wrap to fit the actual window size.

However, when replying, it quotes incoming lines according to the 
standards, so if the line is very long, it is very long in the edit window.
