I think that's a different issue.

AFAIK you can set your email reader to wrap lines when displaying text. I use Outlook, Evolution and Thunderbird and I don't scroll right to read the end of a long line.

On the other hand, asking a reader to treat an HTML email as text is, IMO, wrong as it may lead to a lost of content. It may not be in this ML, but I think it is a fair general assumption.
