    Strange Characters Appearing in Emails

    Hello:

    I'm getting this character -- Â -- sprinkled through my emails. In the
    past, this has occurred with one sender only. Now, it seems to have spread
    to a number of senders.

    Would appreciate guidance on how to correct this nuisance.

    Thanks,
    HC

    Stop writing to people in Azerbaijan? ;^)

    Seriously, what makes you think it is Windows Live Mail's fault? It could
    be your email server, senders' email servers, senders' email clients or your
    client software, which I assume is Windows Live Mail since you are posting
    in this newsgroup. Do you have sample text you would care to post?

    What language are they writing in?

    Are these new messages from them or they replying to messages from you
    or forwarding messages?

    That sort of thing can happen when different mail clients have issue
    with the character encoding. For example, some programs don't handle
    UTF-8 well.

    If you are using a Western European language, you'll have better results
    is you use "Western European (ISO)" rather than UTF.
