E-Mail posting issue.

Ugh. I've discovered one problem with e-mail posts. . .

Line length.

My e-mail client automatically wraps a line of text at around 74 characters. Which means that any posts that I send via e-mail are, unless I go through and manually fix them, gonna look funny.

I'm trying to figure out an easy to way to filter them through some program (fmt? par?) to reformat the lines on a paragraph basis. I'm worried that it's gonna be hard to do automatically. . . hrm. I'll have to think about this some more.

What client do you use?

mutt.

For e-mail, I use mutt. Which uses vi as the editor. Which is currently setup to wrap lines at 74 characters.

And I'd like it to continue with that behavior. . . just not when I'm sending entries to LJ via e-mail. ;-)

I'm gonna look at possibly setting up a hook (send-hook?) to deal with this. I'm sure something will come up. ;-)
You could add an easy vi command thing, like...while not in edit mode press something for livejournal stuff. I dunno.
