It is not working. As you can see from the quote above and below of your
submission, there are no line breaks at all except before and after your "Regards"
line and after your "Unruh," line. What I suspect is that your program
is only setting the length of lines it displays, not lines it sends out.
Ie, to you it looks like the stuff you type out has a line length of 50,
but what gets sent out has no line breaks at all except the ones you
put in manually.

My news reader puts in a > at the beginning of every line in the text it
responds to. Note that your text above has a > at the begininning of the
Unruh, line, a > at the beginning of the next blank line, and a single >
at the beginning of the 256 character text line. That 256 character long
single line is what I see, not a sequence of six 50 character lines.
