    Is there any way to change the how many characters Mail word wraps when sending email? It's default is 72, however when I try to paste a URL thats greater than 72 characters it ends up getting wrapped and screwed up in the process.

    I'm using tinyurl.com at the moment, which helps, but I would prefer to just cut and paste.

    Thanks in advance,

    Dane

    This is a solved problem. You should enclose your long URL is brackets like so: <http://www.my-extremely-long-domain-name.com/which.my.mother.told.to.use.for.this.example.if.you.catch.my.drift.asp>.

    What do you mean, it "didn't work"? The URL will still break, but it should still be recognized as a single continuous URL. Even if your URL breaks into five lines, if you enclose it in brackets as I indicated, it will take you to the proper location when you click on it.

    I emailed a friend a URL with brackets (<>), but it's doing the same the thing. My friend is using outlook express, would that be the problem?
