Set line length/word wrap?

I would like to set a maximum length for lines when composing email in Outlook.  I don't want to use Word to compose messages.  I found some instructions for how to do this in Outlook Express, but I can't find any way to do it with the full version of Outlook.

Thanks!

What version?  If OL2002 you can't unset the line length and the maximum you can set it for is 132.  If less then you have a checkbox which sets a maximum line length.  It is in Tools-Options-Mail Format-Internet Format with OL2002.

I have Outlook 2000....there is no "internet format" option in that menu here.  That menu path you mentioned is the same one that is in outlook express though.  We have MSDN subscriptions here so I will try installing office2k2 and let you know if this solves my problem.

I answered the question for OL2002.  With different menu suggestions the problem would have been solved in OL2k since OL2k can ignore line length altogether.

Well if you can give some menu suggestions for OL2k that would be fine.  But I don't think those settings exist in OL2k.

I was waiting to get office 2k2, but I haven't been able to yet due to budgetary reasons (Darn economy!)

It does exist for OL2k.  I just don't have it to tell you EXACTLY where it is.  I have walked a few customers of mine through setting it up.
