Under Mac OS X 10.6 only it is no longer possible to copy paste multiple fields from Excel or other spreadsheets. Any text in the clipboard that contains more than about 10 tabs will be converted into gibberish text when pasted into the body of a new Mulberry mail. The conversion may occur immediately upon paste or it may be delayed until the Body is edited or until the mail is sent out, this has not been investigated in detail. The conversion does not occur for text with few tabs (e.g. one or two rows of fields from Excel) but it occurs reliably for many tabs (e.g. 10 or 20 rows of fields from Excel). The conversion will also occur if multiple small chunks (e.g. 1 or 2 rows) are pasted one after the other. The conversion is independent of the source of the tab-separated text (Excel, Tables, TextWrangler?), the character set always was Lower ASCII (US English set). The conversion does not happen in Mac OS 10.4, 10.5 has not been tested.
