Hi Alain,

   This differ from the behaviour that I'm describing since you are 
not using my commands, but the standard MailMate paste action (Cmd+v). 
To use mine you should select it from the menubar at "Command -> Paste 
(Extra) -> select the action that you want) or use the shortcut that I 
set (Cmd+Alt+Shift+V pr Cmd+Ctrl+Shift+V), but the shortcuts doesn't 
seem to work great on my side, so you may prefer to set them from the 
macOS standard shortcuts preference or change them in the Bundle
