When I send plain text emails with Mac Outlook, line breaks are automatically inserted. This is annoying for several reasons. (1) long URLs are split over multiple lines which confuses readers; (2) personalised line formatting breaks. Others share the problem (e.g., here and here)

How can I prevent Mac Outlook from inserting line breaks in plain text emails?
