I don't recommend that you use any automatic filling for your mail
composition buffers, i.e., no visual-line-mode and no longlines-mode.  If
you use them, then they will show you a nicely formatted window, but the
long lines will be there in the text of your message.  Sendmail will then
get long lines in your message and it will do whatever it can to do in order
to make it fit the standards of mail protocols.

If you just do your own filling, you will be perfectly fine.
