Unfortunately, not. If the file is attached as plain text, eg. not 
base64 encoded, then line endings may be converted to platform default, 
and may even be converted while passing through mail servers.

However, GNU patch is smart enough to detect CRLF diffs and and to 
convert them to proper LF diffs.

The only safe way is to attach it as .diff.gz to force base64 encoding.

Cheers,

Udo
