Most modern email programs allow the text to flow to the width of the window. Resizing the window width then modifies the line length. There have been a few programs that would do a soft line wrap at user-defined widths (e.g., Mailsmith).
I know that I can resize the width of the window to create a similar effect. The downside is that it can have an impact on the number of columns displayed when using a 3-pane window. I prefer a fairly narrow line width of about 72 characters.
I would like to find a way to have user-defined line lengths in Apple Mail – or other modern mail apps – but have not found a way to do so.
And I would like to force incoming email to always use plain-text format. I think Apple Mail did this in the past. Again, this is something that Mailsmith did well.
Both of these features are easy to do when composing an email – but I want it to work on received email as well.
Mailsmith sends with the following:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8; format=flowed
Note: running Mojave with Apple Mail v12.4.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
