Filtering mail isn't (always) a problem of the mailreader.
There are many free filters for auto-folding.
Emacs itself does it.
Moreover the problem isn't the sender of the mail, 
you can use whatever you want. 
The problem is only for the receiver: if you don't care 
about folding, well, you can use whatever you want.
If you want your computer do an automatic cleaning, delete spammails,
delete mail with subjects as: 'subscribe djgpp' or 'newbie questions'
or 'big binaries' or even 'Allegro:' you have to use something smarter
than Netscape X.
I don't even know if NEtscape does autofolding, but if you want to
know about how your computer could read your mail and suggest you
which mail read, download emacs and type M-x gnus RET C-h i.

	enjoy
