    I'm pulling my hair out over here, so I would be very grateful if
    someone smarter than me could help me out.

    I have Thunderbird set to wrap plain text messages at 72 characters...
    But as you can see it's not doing that.

    Any ideas?

    TB uses format=flowed, that automatically wraps text at the window width of the viewer. There is a means of disabling that, but its not really necessary. The advantage of format flowed is that a message will wrap no matter what window width the viewer uses, no left or right scrolling for plain text messages.

    Your message wrapped for me. MC's reply didn't, but that was because of
    an incorrect parameter setting which I've since corrected. Perhaps your
    problem is the same parameter setting.

    Tools | Options | Display | Wrap text to fit window width.
