In my case, I actually have it this way, partly taken from Sven's .vimrc:
" Only do this part when compiled with support for autocommands.
" Remove all cprog autocommands
" When starting to edit a file:
" For C and C++ files set formatting of comments and set C-indenting
" For other files switch it off.
" Don't change the order, it's important that the line with * comes
if version >= 5.4
autocmd FileType * set formatoptions=tcql
autocmd FileType c,cpp,h set formatoptions=croql
" Source our .tex definitions if it's a .tex file.
au FileType tex so ~/.vimtexrc
" Set up settings for mail.
au FileType mail syn clear
au FileType mail se tw=78 noai
This seems to work just fine.
