Notmuch uses message-mode (from gnus) to compose messages. So in
principle if you can figure out how to do what you want in Gnus, the
same settings should work in notmuch. I don't have any experience with
format=flowed, but there is some (somewhat terse) discussion in the
message-mode manual

Good luck,
