I'm playing around with lpd. My setup: a FreeBSD 7.0 server and a attached HP LaserJet 2840N (connected via ethernet), my 
hplj2840|lp|Hewlett Packard LaserJet 2840C:\

and if-simple:
/usr/local/bin/recode latin1..ibmpc

The prints are ok so fare (incl. the german umlauts). If I print text mails out from mutt the seems ok too. But if the 
mails has some incorrect wrapped lines (> 72 caracters) the lines are not wrapped on the output.  What do I worng here?

Kind regards,
