Hi Geoff

What operating system and mail client do you use?

Pd files are text files anyway. They can simply be attched to
an email as a something.pd file. When you see that attachment in
a message just "save as" something.pd. You can then load it
from the file->load menu of Pd GUI.

It's not encouraged to paste patches as text to a mail message body
(except for small examples between deveopers) because the text
format is not designed as human readable. However, if you do see
a Pd patch as plain text any place, just select, copy and paste
it to a text editor and then save as something.pd, then you should
be able to load it normally.
