Now, I'd even advice you to use =C-c C-v C-d=, the Babel code markup. I've
signed the FSF papers, and its automatic fontifying (using Org mode faces)
should be integrated in the Gnus dev code.

#+begin_src sh

(see a recent thread on that)

But the following:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

is still good. for code.. ;-)  and maybe supported in other emailers than
