agree  xxxR.J.Chadwick: It is Jakarta dialect; and the lack of punctuation makes it hard to work out the intended syntax.

Explanation:
"Hai apa kabar" means "Hello, how are you?"
"boleh" means "may"
"Kalau aku ngirim email ama kamu I" means "if I send you an email"

That is all I understand. You must turn to somebody else for a better translation :o)

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  xxxR.J.Chadwick: And "nggak boleh" (or here: "nggag boleh") means may not; "emang" = certainly; "ama kamu" = to you; "baik-baik aja" = "Just OK"; "kan" indicates a tag question. The "I" at the end may be a typo.

Explanation:
It's clear that the SL is in informal style and it also has to be translated in informal English style.

Explanation:
I thought the last part is cut by ProZ because the text is longer than allowed.

The sentence can be broken down into three parts (rewritten in "good" Indonesian):

(a) Hai apa kabar?
(b) Baik saja, kan?
(c) Memangnya, nggak boleh kalau aku mengirim email sama kami l[agi?]

The bracketed characters are being cut by ProZ.
