On my system, the expressions you posted are not rendered correctly: I 
have got plenty of of =E2 and the like characters. They are not very 
readable and make it hard to reproduce the error!

You should use the _InputForm_ when copying an expression from a 
Mathematica notebook to an email client: select the cell(s) you want to 
include in your email, then within the *Cell* menu select either 
*Convert To* or *Display As* and choose *InputForm*. Finally, copy and 
paste as usual.
