    Change your keyboard settings back to English or default in Control Panel Keyboard

    I have had the same problem, sometimes cropping up in the middle of an e-mail to someone, making me think that I have typed a code to trigger this - I live in Canada! I'm searching for the answer too, so if you find out, let me know! I also get a smalll e with an acute accent if I type a slash.

    Go to Control Panel, Regional and Language Options,
    Keyboards and Languages, Change keyboards.
    Mine shows English-US. I'm not sure what is appropriate for
    Canada.

    I have reset the keyboard language, done everything- and still the E replaces
    the ? sometimes. The CURE: exit Windows Mail, and re-open it. The problem
    goes away until the next time. It happened again today- close the program,
    reopen it- and the ?????? are back!

    I don't have any other suggestions, except to try an upgrade to Windows Live Mail:
