Hi,

I have this problem with view japanese language using webmail.

When I tried to open up the japanese email it shows :
"果たしてこのメ・踉札襪脇匹瓩襪任靴腓・逅擦・・・鹿頏緇若緕・鮠首轣跛昭・蓿繙就鱚痲烽閼仡韆霓鞜齠繖煢篏右瘢雹緕・蜆襲・逅詩瘟赳陂宿梁・・逅雌闥・共瘢雹齡癇・纉黶艱襲..... and so on"
I have tried all the encoding options but it just won't work.

Then when I change it back to english encoding (default), I found a "untitle.html" attachment at the bottom , so I downloaded it and open locally, it works :
果たしてこのメールは読めるでしょうか?

Thats mean nothing wrong with my browser right? But why it does encode properly online?? I have no problem view jap or other language website on line...

The hosting company say they can't help on other language problem...Haha.

Please help.

Thanks.

1. Have you asked your friend what encoding he/she uses?
2. What webmail are you using?

It's strange because the very first part of it appears correctly.. "As one would expect, this e-mail..."
