Feature request: Maximum width of text that is being inserted

Reported by Stephane Wirtel | January 20th, 2014 @ 10:20 AM

Here is a good description of this feature from vim.

Maximum width of text that is being inserted. A longer line will be broken
after white space to get this width.

Thank you,

    Are you asking for hard-wrapping in the composer? That's not a feature I'm going to add unless you can convince me that it's really needed. Note that MailMate uses format=flowed when generating emails. This means that the raw email generated is hard-wrapped, but the receiving email client can still unwrap it (possibly based on the preference of the recipient). A message hard-wrapped by the sender (without format=flowed) cannot reliably be unwrapped by the recipient. In other words, paragraphs can no longer be identified and quoted paragraphs quickly become very ugly.
