    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
