Sure! It works surprisingly well! Though I'd like to see a whitespace

If you look at MUAs like Outlook - they just don't wrap correct, so the
user has to type "Enter" just to make it look right. Blargh. So users
just tend to write without pressing "Enter", hoping that the receiver's
MUA wraps it correctly. Not true for Thunderbird and derivates though.

But actually it's correct - from a typographic point of view - that a
paragraph is written without individual linefeeds, but that collides
with best practise when it comes to plaintext-emails...
But I'm just being a smartass there :)

Back to topic now. And happy new year!
