I prefer to delete all output and then Copy As>Notebook expression.  It
looks ugly in the e-mail, but it's easily pasted into Mathematica.

I agree with you that it makes responding and using easier if the In and
numbers are not included.

An easier way to do this, rather than copying the contents of the cells,
to use menu>Kernel>Show In/Out Names.

Usually a little manual reformating is needed to distinguish text, input
output --- I try to use one tab indent for input and two tabs indent for
output, plus some  blank line adjustment.
I  wonder if anyone has a way of automatically achieving this
