Windows Live Mail Encoding

    Windows Live Mail Encoding

    My operational system is Windows Vista Home Premium. I am using for sending
    and receiving mail Windows Live Mail. No matter what type of encoding I
    select,
    what I see on the screen when I type on my keyboard is not what my
    correspondents see at the other end. I have tried Western European Windows
    and was a disaster. The best option I am using now is that I selected
    UNICODE UTF-8 but when I mail letters in Spanish at the other end, the
    accented vowels and the
    letter Ñ are replaced by funny chartset symbols. Their reply comes back to
    me with the same problem, easily solved by going to enconding and click on
    Windows Western European, and things become normal. With ISO encoding things
    were worst. Please somebody tell me how can I set my Windows Live Mail in
    order to type in English, French and Spanish like before with Outlook Express
    without the present encoding problems for mail in and out.

    RE: Being Ignored

    I fail to understand the reasons why nobody answered my post of 2.26.08 named
    Windows Live Mail Encoding. If it is because nobody has the right answer
    then it is OK, but I will feel sad if it is just because you do not like me.
    For your information, I have tried placing the question to the ones that are
    supposed to have the answer, I mean WINDOWS LIVE MAIL, but the result has
    been identical.. no answer.

    If you get no responses, it means we don't have an idea how
    to fix your problem. Your problem is very unusual.

    Re: Being Ignored

    Places to check this:
    - Tools, Options, Send, International
    - Tools, Options, Read, Font
    - Tools, Options, Read, International

    Are all 3 set the same?
    I am not sure how the different settings affect the reading and sending of
    multi-language emails.
    I will be busy for a week, so do not expect any replies until later.

    Hi, Esmeraldota.

    I saw your question last month but I have no helpful answer for you so I
    didn't want to waste your time with a post that said only, "I don't know".
    If someone who might be able to help had seen your question with a Reply
    already posted, he might have assumed that I had actually helped you, and
    might have gone on to the next post. Our leaving your post unanswered
    probably increased your chances of getting a helpful reply. Please don't
    think that lack of a response is because we don't like you.

    Asking your question again after waiting a reasonable time for a reply is
    the proper action. Sometimes it helps to reword the question and post it as
    a new thread with a new more-evocative Subject. And sometimes, if nobody
    here knows the answer, we just can't help, no matter how much we would like
    to help.

    Over 50 years ago, I studied Spanish in college, but I haven't used it and
    don't remember much. Does "El Pregunton" translate to "The Questioner"?
    And, even with my Western European (either Windows or ISO) encoding and
    always in English, I still often see weird characters, especially for
    punctuation. Sometimes switching to Unicode helps; sometimes it doesn't.

    "I won't post because I can't help" does NOT translate to "being ignored".

    What firewall, anti-virus application or security suite is installed? There
    are some that cause problems which do not appear immediately.

    I write in Spanish all the time and my international setting is Western
    European (ISO) and in my HTML settings it's Quoted Printable, and they all
    go through fine.
