I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. The original was sent as a
multipart/alternative, with both text/plain and text/html parts.
Leaving aside the horrendous HTML (one div per line? bleurgh!), the
HTML part seems OK, with no line longer than 80 characters. The
text/plain equivalent seems to have taken that, and further wrapped
lines at 69 columns or so, for no apparently good reason.
Is it well formatted? I suspect it's just coincidence that the text
wraps at exactly 80 columns for a couple of lines.
 In as much as HTML mail can ever be OK, of course...
