Question

I am encountering problems with text wrapping on mail received from Microsoft Exchange Server

Answer

The following settings affect the behavior of Exchange Server and not GMS Mail.

A new registry value has been added under the Internet Mail Service Parameters key to provide control over the Internet Mail Service text quoting behavior. The UseRTFText registry value is a DWORD value that specifies if reply-and-forward text will be quoted in outgoing messages that are not sent with rich text formatting. If it is enabled (non-zero), Internet-style quoting is applied to reply-and-forward text by inserting a greater than (>) character before each line. If UseRTFText is disabled (set to zero or not present), no Internet-style quoting is applied. UseRTFText is enabled by default.

Note UseRTFText also affects word-wrap. If enabled, text lines in all non-TNEF messages are wrapped at a fixed column. The word-wrap setting for non-MIME messages on the Internet Mail Service properties in the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program is ignored.

EnableMIMEWrap : REG_DWORD : 0
EnableMIMEWrap controls word-wrap in outgoing non-TNEF MIME messages. If it is enabled, lines in MIME messages are wrapped at a fixed column. If EnableMIMEWrap is disabled (and UseRTFText is also disabled), lines are wrapped using quoted printable encoding. MIME-enabled readers will unwrap the lines, restoring the original text flow, but users with non-MIME readers will see a “=” character appended to each wrapped line of text.

EnableMIMEWrap is enabled by default. UseRTFText also affects word-wrap. If enabled, text lines in all non-TNEF messages are wrapped at a fixed column, regardless of the setting of EnableMIMEWrap. The word-wrap setting for non-MIME messages on the Internet Mail Service properties in the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program is ignored.
