The responsibility for determining if the paragraph is RTL or LTR
depends on the client rading the email, not the author. Since most
clients are not RTL aware (Thunderbird needs an addon to make it RTL
aware) the email author can use HTML which allows one to mark the
paragraphs or entire mail as RTL.

If HTML mail is not an option, you can precede the mail (or every
paragraph, again this is reading-client dependent) with the
non-printing RLE (Right-to-Left Embedding) character.

More info here, including RLE character and other characters that you
can copy and paste into your emails:
