Sending an email in gmail inserts line breaks, is it possible to stop that or remove those?

For example if I email myself a message that I want to email somebody. Then if at some point try to email the person and copy paste what I emailed myself, it has line breaks stuck in there.

For example here is a story. Snow white and the seven dwarfs. https://www.dltk-teach.com/RHYMES/SNOWWHITE/story.htm

I can put it in notepad/notepad2, and it all wraps nicely because there aren’t a ton of line breaks in there.

But if I email myself that in gmail.

So I enter it into this window

or clicking the popout/so-called full screen button in that gmail window

then it shows it as

Then I click send.

Then I get

Then if I try to put that into notepad/notepad2, it shows as

As you can see, Gmail has added a load of line breaks to it that weren’t in there when I typed it.

Is there a way to get the original thing I typed without the line breaks that gmail added? So if I put a line break in there then fine but I don’t want the ones that Gmail added.

I don’t mind whther we are talking about removing gmail’s additional line breaks from the email the recipient gets. Or, removing the additional line breaks from the email I see in my sent folder. Or retrieving the contents of the email from my sent folder but without the additional line breaks

At the moment i’m doing it manually. So eg copy/pasting the email into notepad and removing some of the line breaks manually.. judging each one.. Or a bit quicker, copy/pasting into Gvim and using “J” to remove some of the line breaks.
