Well, that sounds like a very thin wrapper around insert-buffer:

(defun send-buffer-as-mail ()
  (let ((str (buffer-string)))
    (insert str)))

That's pretty much exactly what you'd get if you ran "C-x m", "M-x
insert-buffer", [choose buffer], "<RET>".

Alternately, there are a few functions that do this from Org mode, so
you can have nice structured text editing, and then email it.
