For the record, start with Edit/Preferences on Linux.

Also, I think this isn't Thunderbird's fault; it looks like it was 
posted that way.
(And for the pedantic: the OP has 'User-Agent: PHP News Reader v2.6.4 
(CDSHEEN)' in its headers so I'm pretty sure it wasn't Thunderbird ;) )

Why would a program need to be "configured" just to do the right thing? 
That's just wrong.

It doesn't need to be configured. Thunderbird does the right thing by 
default. No matter what column you set your Thunderbird to wrap at, it 
will not break URLs or other long words. The OP used the PHP news reader 
interface and that interface did the wrong thing and broke the link when 
posting the message. Thunderbird has no way of knowing that that wasn't 
intended.
