Description Christian Tröster 2004-05-03 16:40:17 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

It's a proposal to end those debates whether mails should be hard-wraped or not.

Basically the mail body gets formated as a hard-wrapped text with all breaks inside a paragraph replaced with softer version " \n" (instead of just "\n", notice the space at the end of line). In addition to that, it requires the message having a mime type:
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=XXXX; format=flowed

It's supported by Thunderbird, Opera, Eudora and Hotmail(!).

There's a newer RFC for this which is referenced in wish #92591.
