Given the profusion of potential devices for reading email and their
differing sizes, I have found that unfilled paragraphs are best in
general although I do fill for posts to mailing lists like this one and
newsgroups as that is the convention (arguably).

However, if there is formatting that you wish to preserve (lists,
equations [which often is the case for my emails to my research group,
say]), the only real option (as much as I dislike it) is to use HTML.  I
write my email using org syntax and then invoke

  M-x org-mime-htmlize RET

just before sending.
