      For my weekly status report, which I compose during the week using
      Vim before sending it to my boss using Outlook, I

      :set tw=9999

      then highlight the lines of the report using V. Then

      gqgvY

      to reformat all the paragraphs as long lines and yank them to the
      clipboard, move the mouse to the Outlook message and

      Ctrl-V

      My ~/_vimrc includes

      set clipboard^=unnamed

      so that I don't have to specify the clipboard explicitly.

      HTH,
      Gary
