I wrote the post with Yahoo Mail's interface.  Adding a new line at the end of every sentence would make the resulting text extremely narrow.  Their editor window is only 60 characters wide.  The normal line wrap should occur at 72-75 for an 80 column with terminal or it should autowrap.

As pointed out, the flaw is in the interface which could be modified to properly detect and rewrap text according to the interface being used.
