unix2dos has nothing to do with the length of a line. It only changes
the line-end characters that occur when a new line is specifically
indicated (i.e. at the end of each log entry).

Wrapping is entirely a function of the program in which you are
viewing the text. So tweak your Outlook to wrap or not-wrap as you see
fit.
