You could try longlines.el.  It will create files with long lines.
Those can be inserted into the email without a lot of trouble, I'd
think.

However, I think that longlines.el might not be handling the empty
lines very well.  So you'd get a long line for the first paragraph,
then an empty line, then a long line for the second paragraph, and so
on.  But maybe you can live with this.
