I didn't know this utility, but have now installed it. Though I see  
(from the man):

     For the "power user", a full understanding of par will require  
     readings of the TERMINOLOGY, OPTIONS, DETAILS, and EXAMPLES  

So may be a while before grasp it all ;)

It is not, it is saved on (sort of) a per-file type basis.

So what I'd suggest is to create a new language (you'd probably do  
that anyway to get proper styling of quoted text etc.) and use that  
language for your emails (so give it a unique extensions, so they'll  
be recognized).

If you toggle the soft wrap setting, while the language is set to  
your new email language, it should stick for that file type.
