Okay, then it just adds the "COLS" (SMB_COLUMNS) header field
your messages and
when viewing using the built-in message reader, it'll use that value to
intelligentally re-wrap (flow) the message for the current terminal width.

If you're using your own custom message reader, it probably isn't using this
columns header field (yet).
