bt mail: excel: copy : paste: background: coloured font

I want to put an excel file into the main text area of an email.

My excel file consists of a shaded background and coloured font.

I select the background area using mouse and copy this using ^c

I then goto my email and 'compose'.  Position cursor in text area & paste using ^v

I would expect this text to be the shaded background & coloured font.

Instead I get the text in black and no background.

The exercise does work if I use 'attach file'.

Have you selected to compose in rich text rather than plain text?

RICH appears to be the default. However I explicitly selected RCH  with same result

Re: bt mail: excel: copy : paste: background: coloured font

Unfortunately this problem has not been resolved.

This problem did not occur when I used BT Yahoo MAIL. It involves HTML data consisting of coloured text and also background colour within excel

My complete problem:-

I get some data from London Stock Exchange which appears as HTML. I then put this into my own EXCEL sheet.

I then want to copy part of this spreadsheet into the BT MAIL.

There seems to be more than one problem! .. HTML ....Coloured text ..... background 

Using BT yahoo MAIL I had to involve copy from EXCEL to WORD before copy into MAIL ....for some unknown reason. I did not report this to anyone.

I have also got a completely different occurrence when I get 'mso-fareast-font-family' text appearing

I still have problem: I have reported a number of simple exercises and given results. These do not appear to have been looked at. Should I be reporting these to somebody(?) else or differently. I only had one minor problem when performing this exercise with bt yahoo email.
Bring back windows 7 and yahoo mail !! THANKS!! HOPING!!
