1) provided that you have a text file in the first place (from your email)
that contains just sequence data, then reformat will complain that there
is no divider, but will reformat the data OK (that's true for GCG 7, don't
know about 8 yet)

2) If you use the Save As... option in Wordperfect and specify that you
want to save the file as Text Only, then that should allow you to bump the
file back and reformat it OK.
