This isn't really a bug.. 
Say I write an intro to an email and copy and paste something from a website which has different font size then the body of the email. I want to keep the everything about the font the same from the website (color, text decor, etc) except the  size.. I want the font size to match the the body of the email. So I highlight the body of the email goto Format->Size and choose small. The style of the text I typed changed but the copy and pasted stuff remains the same....

I could goto Format->Remove all text styles and resize, but that removes all the other style I wanted to keep...



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start typing an email 
2.copy and paste somethign with different style
3.try to change the style of everything to make it all match. 
4.only the stuff you type will change.
How about using the paste without style function ?

I believe that this would not achieve what the bdm4 is attempting to do..
