It works for me, using Mathematica 7.0 on Windows. I wonder if you are 
actually encountering this issue with Thunderbird:

x circumflex 2 (* where you use the ^ operator! *)

prints using normal superscript notation, which looks great until you 
copy and paste it into Mathematica, when it comes out as x2.

If this is your actual problem, a partial solution is to view the 
message source and copy and paste from that.
