Most reliable is to just use git send-email :-)

The kernel Documentation/email-clients.txt  has some tips on how to
stop thunderbird mangling patches, but it sounds painful...

[quote]
By default, thunderbird likes to mangle text, but there are ways to
coerce it into being nice.

- Under account settings, composition and addressing, uncheck "Compose
  messages in HTML format".

- Edit your Thunderbird config settings to tell it not to wrap lines:
      user_pref("mailnews.wraplength", 0);

- Edit your Thunderbird config settings so that it won't use format=flowed:
      user_pref("mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed", false);

- You need to get Thunderbird into preformat mode:
. If you compose HTML messages by default, it's not too hard. Just select
  "Preformat" from the drop-down box just under the subject line.
. If you compose in text by default, you have to tell it to compose a new
  message in HTML (just as a one-off), and then force it from there back to
  text, else it will wrap lines. To do this, use shift-click on the Write
  icon to compose to get HTML compose mode, then select "Preformat" from
  the drop-down box just under the subject line.

- Allows use of an external editor:
  The easiest thing to do with Thunderbird and patches is to use an
  "external editor" extension and then just use your favorite $EDITOR
  for reading/merging patches into the body text.  To do this, download
  and install the extension, then add a button for it using
  View->Toolbars->Customize... and finally just click on it when in the
  Compose dialog.
