Bingo.  And just for giggles, I'm
wrapping this message at a very
short length, just to show that it
isn't exactly easy to tell the
difference between paragraphs and
formatted text.

What follows is a snippet of lyric
poetry for your enjoyment.  Enjoy!
The face of death is my best friend
He lurks behind my favorite bend
And though we meet, we never speak
I've got a feeling he's unique


Now, I'll be happy to retrieve this
message with anybody's choice of MUA
and see if the wrapping is done
automagically and share the results.

And Alan's comment about PGP
signatures stands, too.
