Trac Emails Poorly formated

Description

I'll be honest, no idea if Meta is the right place for this. But it's super annoying that trac emails get reformated with hard line breaks that break quoted replies.

I presume email notifications are getting a hard break at 80 characters. That makes it very hard to follow what is actually a reply between quoted text and what is just broken formatting.

Is there any possibility of fixing this in trac itself?

This is unfortunately something that Trac internally does, and we can't really control the behaviour of.

This feels like a bug that should be reported upstream to Trac though.

Marking this as close noting it should be reported upstream.
