You seem to be writing the messages for cutting at 80 characters per
line, but be actually sent cutting at 74 or so. The first are treated
as hard breaks, so there are two breaks, one at 74 characters and
another one at what would have been 80, thus producing lonely words.
I also suspect of Outlook for causing hthis, but know little on how to
fix. See if you have some option to reduce the line length.
Usage of flowed text can also help.
