[Oberon] MM+MR into mutt in ssh viewer vs. into Web mailer in vnc

Here is a case study in using ssh and vnc.
After many hours of reading and tinkering, mutt
running on machine H at home can be accessed
via ssh from another machine M, at an arbitrary
location. Of course, M runs Oberon or Aos
containing ssh and vnc clients.
Typically I compose a message using ET and then
want to copy it into the viewer for a mailer
visible in M. The mailer can be mutt viewed via
ssh. Otherwise it is Web based, MailSite Express
viewed with vnc.
Copying with MM+MR into MailSite Express via vnc
works. An attempt to MM+MR copy into mutt in
the ssh viewer immediately freezes it. Yet a
command such as "ls *" can be copied into the
ssh viewer and executed with no difficulty.
Hopefully someone with a better understanding of
the protocols and softwares can explain why one
method works while the other fails.
Thanks, ... Peter E.
