Lines in message all get shortened when received

When ever I type a message it looks fine in single line spacing. When it is received all lines are shortened to about 30 characters and < is put in at the beginning and end of the newly shortened lines. Looks horrible and hard to read. If I resend from another account, I have to spend a lot of time editing out the < and >. Why is it happening? How to fix. It has been going on for some months. Have been using Chrome, but recently switched to Firefox, with no change in problem.

Re: Lines in message all get shortened when received


Does it happen with every single email that you compose? Or is just only with specific contacts? 

Are you typing or copy/pasting text?
