I am not certain about Lotus Notes, but when I copy expressions from
MathGroup Email (under Outlook) into a Mathematica notebook I use Edit ->
Paste As -> Plain Text. If it is pasted with Edit -> Paste it looks small.
But that can be fixed by putting the cursor in the cell and converting to
StandardForm, using Ctrl-Shift-N.
