For me the address book is my personalized System.Tool, 
currently about 240 kB.

FWIIW I'm in the habit of using the [Enter] key.  At least one 
correspondent complains that lines in my messages are too short!
Can't please everyone.

On the other hand, line breaking is part the principle of Web 
browser responsibility for presentation of a document.  If 
anything.html contains ASCII text and is opened with Desktops.OpenDoc, 
lines will be wrapped to fit the viewer.  Adapt Mail.Open so that it treats a message 
as an html text.  Just an idea; I've never pursued it.
