Long urls get wrapped in my incoming email


May 7, 2010
For my work, I often get emails with long urls, but Mozilla Thunderbird wraps them at 72 characters, and I haven't found a setting that successfully prevents that. I'm fairly sure it's my email client doing it upon receipt rather than the sender, because I can mark the message as unread and view it with the company's webmail interface (which is too clunky to use as my primary method of accessing email), and there the url isn't wrapped.

I had heard about Eudora, but that's apparently now built on top of the Mozilla Thunderbird platform or something, so switching to that had little effect on this issue.

I also tried with Outlook 2010, which does the same thing to the urls (which are less frequently recognized and converted to links) and additionally does a rotten job of alerting me when new mail arrives (I read in some places that it's supposed to change the system tray icon to show an envelope over the O instead of having a separate envelope icon, but the only times I saw the system tray icon change were when it was checking for new mail; it went back to normal afterwards whether I had new mail in my inbox or not)

Does anybody know settings that will fix this in either Thunderbird or Outlook 2010? Alternatively, can someone suggest a more advanced email client I could use? (it needs to run under Windows 7, but it doesn't have to be free, as long as I can download a trial first)
