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...

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.
