In any word processor:
USE COURIER 12 point and set the page width to 6.5 inches.
This will give you 65 characters per line, which is within the
65-70 character limit of some email readers. Do not use BOLD,
Italic or any other fonts: just plain courier.

Write your text, and when you are happy with it, make HARD line
returns at the end of every line.

This will not look EXACTLY the way you typed it in, but it won't
blow up on you.
