I think I am not the only one who has the annoying problem of copying 

formulas from Thunderbird and pasting it into Mathematica. All exponents 

(carets) are thereby lost. The problems comes from the fact, that 

Thunderbird interprets the caret and displays superscripts.

A workaround is to use the menu: View/Message Source, where the carets 

are shown.

However, it should be possible to configure Thunderbird to not interpret 

carets. But I failed to find out how and would appreciate if anybody 

knows it.
