I'm using evolution 2.28 with Ubuntu. When I cut and paste from a received email to one that I'm composing, all the HTML formatting is erased. Long ago on an older version of Evolution I know this used to work, and it's been driving me nuts. I searched the Evolution wiki, bug lists, the preferences/configuration dialogs, etc., can't find any reference to this problem. I find mentions of people working so you can cut and paste from Firefox to Evolution and keep the HTML formatting - so I assume that HTML cut and paste should work, but even email-to-email it won't work for me!!!

Is this broken for everybody? Does anybody have a clue as to why it doesn't work? It's not a huge deal but since it used to work with older versions of Evolution, and it would be handy if it still did, there must be something going on.

Thanks to anybody who can help.
