Howdy y'all,

Hopefully this'll be a quick query but does anyone know if Thunderbird on OS X supports Rich Text being pasted into mails?

For a while I was using Thunderbird under XP and was cutting text from Safari etc and pasting them into Thunderbird and the formatting would be preserved. I'm trying the same thing under OS X now and the text loses all formatting.

I've checked that the Compose in HTML option is on but no luck. At the moment, I'm doing a workaround by using Mail but I want to keep them separate - Mail for all my personal stuff and Thunderbird for the other stuff.

I've done a bit of googling and it seems like Thunderbird might not be able to do this but it's odd if it works nicely under XP but not OS X.

Any suggestions or tips welcome
