See above: text is wrapped (unless you did this yourself) afaik, 
thunderbird just does it when sending is pressed but it is not 
needed/wanted to wrap, as different receivers can have different 
screens/window size and so wrapping leaves empty space at the end of the 
line, of even has to be redone if the pre-wrapped lines are longer than 
the space available, or you need to scroll the window.
