Good day!

        I decided to confront a problem I have been having since I started 
using Exchange 2000.  Most of you guys do not get even close to have this 
problem since it is related to accentuated characters (é, à, è, etc...).

        Those characters are all in the ASCII chart but higher than 128.  What 
happens is that if a message is sent using OWA and has accents in it, the 
accents are replaced by "garbage-codes".  In some cases, the character is even 

        The problem does not always occur, depending on the origin.  However, 
if it happens with a client, it will happen all the time.  I have tried to find 
a common thread between the clients without luck.  No matter what version if 
IE, of Windows, of regional settings and so on.

        I would understand for characters not in the ASCII chart but, again, 
all the problematic characters ARE in the ASCII chart.

        Any idea?

        Thanks :-)
