Default Reformat text copied from email

When I copy & paste text from an email with narrow text line into a word
document it does not expand to the right margin. Is there a quicker way to
remove those line returns without having to go through line by line and
hitting delete? I tried find and replace manual line break and it only
"found" one or two and skipped the rest.

Deleting line by line takes forever and is very frustrating. There must be
some way to do this quicker. I have Office 2000.
