Word wrap and Evolution

It is possible to mix word wrapped text and long lines in Evolution, though it's not immediately obvious. In the Compose window there is a drop-down just above the text area. There are several options, with Normal giving wrapped text and Preformat which leaves it alone (like HTMLs <pre></pre>). Quoted text in a reply or forward gets allocated to Preformat, with any new text getting Normal, but it's selectable. (Note this works with plain text emails - it's not just an HTML option)
I use KMail at home & Evolution at work as I can't settle on one over the other - they just seem to fit better that way for the way I use them.
