I have just started learning to use vi, and remember someone posting

is done?


Well, I use VIM instead of VI, it is an "enhanced version"


For automatic settings, set up a .vimrc file in your home dir.

Add in:

:set tw=74 (to set your text width)

Or you can add this in manually on the VI command line after starting it.


Now to refomat an email, while preserving the > on previous quoted text, type in ESC gqip
