Yes, that's good, but many times what you see is due to the mail client. 
  Often the client posts in HTML.  For the most compatibility, it's much 
better to post in plain text only.  Personally, I don't think there is 
ever a need to post something in HTML.  If format is really that 
necessary, do it as an attachment.

Usually, I can do Edit -> Rewrap and get a reasonable format, so I tend 
to not complain unless the post requires a line-by-line manual reformat. 
  That did happen fairly recently.
