Selecting text puts it in the "+" register. You can paste it into Vim
by turning on Preferences > Middle Mouse Pastes and using the middle
mouse button, or using :put + from the command line.
Cream's cut/copy toolbar buttons support the global register ("*") and
only in visual mode which is why the buttons are inactive in the
command line. The Vim "+" register is not supported on Windows outside
of Vim so you would not be able to paste this to an email either.
(Unless you are using a unix-based email app. :)
