  Target Milestone: ---

This has bothered me for years ever since switching from Evolution. I always
compose via plain text, as I did for over a decade in Evolution. Anytime I
copied/pasted or entered a long link into Evolution it would NOT line wrap that
link. Most everything else it would line wrap as it should.

Kmail2 always line wraps long lines which breaks the link for the recipient.
This is the opposite problem of bug 78302. Which is for handling broken links.
I want Kmail2 to stop breaking the links in the first place. It forces the
recipient to have to copy and paste the entire link, all lines. Rather than
them simply being able to click on the link.

There is no reason to line wrap a long link and break its click function for
the recipient. Evolution never did this, but sadly Kmail2 has always. I hope
Kmail2 can be modified to not line wrap long links.

I consider this to be a bug/issue NOT a feature request. As this breaks click
link function for anyone receiving the email.
