IMO, E is correct.

a) you should included a self-addressed, stamped envelope
Wrong.
- Should + past tense ==> incorrect.

b) it is recommended that you would be including a self-addressed, stamped envelope
Wrong.
- The structure should be parallel: when you send....., you should............ ==> "it is recommended that" is not appropriate.
- "Would be + Ving" is the past tense of "will be + Ving" ==> you mention a thing in the past. For instance: I didn't go to the party last night because I would be going to class. ==> B changes meaning.

c) a self-addressed, stamped envelope is that which you should be including
Wrong.
- "a self-addressed, stamped envelope" ==> Plural ==> "are" should be used.
- "that which" is incorrect grammar.

d) you might should have included a self-addressed, stamped envelope
Wrong.
- "should have included" is used to indicate an obligation that was supposed to have occurred in the past.
- "might should" is incorrect.

e) you might ought to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope
Correct.
- might ought to = might have to ==> mentions uncertainty

I am not sure about the universality of this example; But I feel, it might be an archaic form, if it is true that E is the correct answer as the poster makes out, because there is some dilemma about this structure. First, might is a modal that indicates the mood of partial possibility and more of equi-vocality, whereas ought to indicates comparatively a cent per cent certainty. The question is whether we can combine a half possibility with a full possibility?
Second, I haven’t seen so far GMAT examples of this type. Has anyone?

No examples come to mind that include 'might ought'. 'Should' yes, but not 'might ought'. Also, the GMAT doesn't use 'you' or 'I' or 'we' in SC.

I think "might ought" is wordy. Only ought to include can suffice.

Anyone disagree?

isn't it is too precise to say that :
the GMAT doesn't use 'you' or 'I' or 'we' in SC

All of the answer choices sound terrible.

E sounds less bad.

Might ought is not ungrammatical, but it sure sounds folksy. While having a question with this usage is useful to members, just to bring it to notice, I hardly think anyone is going to see this on the actual exam.

yes, "might out to/ might have to , should be mentioned in grammar books if it exist.

C is passive and B’s tense is clearly wrong, so they are both gone. ‘might should have’ in D does not make sense. The tense in A is also incorrect, its past when this is advice for the future ( I misread that when first reading, so I got confused). This leaves E, even though it is wordy, as the best option.
