Documentation: mention email-clients.txt in SubmittingPatches
I was struggling to get my email-client no to mangle my patch files, and I didn't find enough information in the SubmittingPatches file. By looking for more information on the web, I eventually found the email-clients.txt file, and it answered all my needs This patch adds a reference to email-clients.txt in SubmittingPatches, and Mozilla related information which is no longer accurate (as opposed to the details found in email-clients.txt). This should be helpful for people sending their first patches, or not sending patches on a frequent basis.

-WARNING: Some mailers like Mozilla send your messages with

-The problem is that "format=flowed" makes some of the mailers
-on receiving side to replace TABs with spaces and do similar
-changes. Thus the patches from you can look corrupted.
-To fix this just make your mozilla defaults/pref/mailnews.js file to look like:
