Description of problem:
For some reason when i use Evolution and try to either write a new message or
reply to a message, it keeps going on and on on one line. It does not word wrap.
I tried using Kmail and Balsa and they do the same thing. Yes, the word wrap
was turned on in Kmail and it still didn't do it. It seems like a system wide
problem since any email client i use doesn't word wrap.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.New message, or reply to.
2.write a body
3.body keeps going on on one line.
Actual Results: Keeps going on on one line.
Expected Results: Word wraped.
Works for me here. In the evolution composer, what type of formatting is
selected (preformat, normal, etc)? Also, what is the output of the locale command?
Thanks for replying. It doesn't matter which formatting i use (pre, or normal).
I get the same result no matter what. It happens when sending a new message or
replying to a message in all three email clients (Kmail, Evolution, and Balsa).
Result is same in Gnome or in KDE. I installed Sylpheed and for some reason it
word wraps just fine. Weird.
The output for the locale command is:
Is this better with the 1.4.x packages
(http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/evolution/RPMS/ has packages for Red Hat Linux 9)
Closing due to lack of activity and assuming that 1.4.x fixes this.
