Text Wrapping in Outlook for Mac 2011

Hi!  My Outlook 2011 for Mac refuses to wrap text when I'm writing emails.  I looked online, and on this site, but couldn't find any solutions.  Manually adding line breaks is a mess, so does any one know of a way to fix this?  I'm sure there's just some setting I'm missing. 

Thanks!

Answer
Outlook for Mac introduces format=flowed formatting for plain text messages. This is similar to HTML, which by nature wraps only when it reaches the right edge of the window.

Format=flowed means that plain text messages are no longer wrapped around the 80th character. This makes reading messages much cleaner on different size devices like iPhones or iPads. Messages are rewrapped automatically by the receiving application rather than the sending application.

This feature cannot be turned off.

Hope this helps!
