    Ok, this isn't really a problem, I'm sure its just a setting. I've probably always had this problem, and just never knew, beccuase nobody on hotmail ever pointed it out to me.

    When I send an email to a hotmail user, my sentences and paragraphs are broken up terribly. I always hit "enter" at the end of all my sentences, paragraph breaks, etc, but after they receive it, it is completely broken up. For what its worth, I forwarded an email to myself, that someone told me about this on, and it does indeed do this. I don't think its a hotmail setting.

    For instance, in Thunderbird, it may will look like this...

    bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla[enter]
    bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla[enter]

    Then they receive it, and it looks like this...

    bla bla bla bla
    bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla[enter]
    bla
    bla bla bla bla bla
    bla bla bla bla bla bla bla[enter]

    I hope my bla's properly explain the problem.

    OK, this is driving me crazy..

    Someone's gotta know the answer to this.

    I have a strange feeling it has to do with the "word wrap" setting, which is currently at 80 characters. Should it be lower? Should it be higher?

    Could somoeone explain to me what word wrap is exactly?.. I assume that means it wraps the characters at the set amount and makes a new line, but if I'm hitting enter to start a new line, then it shouldn't be starting new lines for me...

    Thanks
    IGF
