alpine - long lines when quoting

I have recieved a few emails with extremely long lines.
For example I can read them fine when reading the mail, but when replying 
it is just one big line.
And I have to press the end key to see the rest of the line.
It seems to contain a $ sign which I guess means continues off the screen.
So what is the problem here?
Is it "Line wrap" or something?
If so is it the other person's settings that is the issue?
And how do I get text wrap information?

All help is greatly appreciated,
