[gmx-users] line wrapping on the gmx-users list

Perhaps it is just the way I am doing things then. From my viewing, there were 4 posts yesterday that required me to scroll horizontally when reading in my browser (This line too will come out requiring scrolling on the gmx list page that I find most useful):


Since http://www.gromacs.org/Support/Mailing_Lists/GMX-Users_List is also available, I guess that I have that option too, but I much prefer the long monthly list with links that colour according to my browser history.

the specific email of that post. However, I choose to receive digests, so I don't get those emails
and thus can not reply to them.

Thanks for your help.

Yeah, but I would look to my mail client to configure mail the way I want
to send it and see it, not a mail server to configure how everybody has to
see it. With all due respect, I have long wondered why your email workflow
is unable to reply to a thread correctly. :-) Perhaps it is time for an
