It sounds like you answered that question or at least have a place to start
do you not?  Depending on origin, you get different results?  Is that
because of language settings??

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 skipped.

        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 :-)
