  I don't remember whether or not I moved to the next line as I was
  having various problems sending email.

  I originally tried to send an email with a new version of Emacs 26.1.
  When that failed due to Emacs not issuing a STARTTLS command, I
  decided to create a "report-emacs-bug" about it.  That would
  probably also fail for the same reason but at least I would have
  a bug report message in the format of "report-emacs-bug" in a
  buffer that I could cut&paste and thus send outside of Emacs.

  Since I had the "report-emacs-bug" message, I might as well attempt
  to send it within Emacs -- the worse that could happen is tbat
  semding mail would fail again.

  This time I got the 'Fix continuation lines?'' query, to which I
  kept answering "n".

  You'll notice that it says "...lines".  That's plural, i.e. more
  than one.  To me, that meant that ALL lines would be fixed up.

  I had no idea that "lines" really meant "line and that I would
  have to answer each one indvidually.

  If there were visual clues, i.e. movement, I must have misse it.
  Perhaps that query could be augment with the words "..this line"?

  Additionally, perhap a way to specify ALL remaining occurences,
  similar to the way "query-replace" works?

`Unfortunally not because of Emacs not issuing a STARTTLS  command...

 Thanks
