I have a system with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail as the email client. Comcast is the service provider. The problem I am having is there is no word wrapping at the end of an line, it just continues forever and ever. If I hit enter to go to a new line the first letter gets capitalized. Are there margin settings somewhere that I have overlooked. I have already set it from html to plain text. Please help.

Thank you!

Hi, I'm running windows 7 with windows live, if I type continuous even garble to test this  
once it reaches the right side it does not continue on forever and ever??
 it simply drops down below to the next line and continues on.
But I also use the space bar,
but try this above in your new email click on the justification.
Mail sending  should be set to html

ok, but I don't see this when typing continuously into a new email as soon it reaches the far right is simply drops down to the next line as shown in my illustration.
Are you replying to an email from another client such as Outlook.? or hotmail, then I would check the settings in windows Live

This problem occurs whether replying to an email or writing a new one.

The wrap setting on on the "Plain Text Settings" button on the Send tab of the Options page.

Not sure why it wouldn't wrap HTML mail -- but it should wrap okay if you set the Mail Sending format to Plain Text;  set the automatically wrap text number to a typical line length (76 is the default and works sell);  AND uncheck the "Reply to messages using the format in which they were sent" -- which may be overriding your sending format choice.

Note that the HTML settings choice also allows you to set the automatic word wrap length as long as the encoding is set to "None"  [Choices are None, Quoted Printable, or Base64].   Have you tried setting this as well?
