Hello, We are using OWA on Exchange 2000 Server. Front-end server and SSL is configured but the server is not yet in production. It will be moved to DMZ as soon everything is working - which is basically one thing: From OWA, using IE 5.0 or higher sends a email outside our network containing å, ä or ö (swedish characters) it seems the message is converted to Unicode (UTF-8) and therefore converting theese characters to something like this â'¬¡fâEURsÃ'Â¥rt. It works if the email is sent within the organization. It also works if I use Netscape 7.01, there it even works sending externally to my hotmail address. Found some articles (273615 and 281745) but they do not seem to solve my problem. Both Front- and Back-end servers have SP3 installed for both Windows 2000 Server and Exchange 2000 Enterprise Server. Please help. Best regards Björn -------------------------------------------------------------- This e-mail and attachments may contain confidential, proprietary or legallyprivileged information.
