    I haven't ever used e-mail for bids, just seems a tad informal.

    Registered post (proof of delivery) with a stamped and signed quotation is standard here.

    This way there can be no excuses:
    - of your bid not being received or somehow lost
    - not delivered on-time (tender dead-lines)
    - being incomplete, informal or invalid as a legal document (debate on electronic signatures)
    - or altered/modified in retrospect

    In any case, you're spared of the legal runarounds some site's like to use.
