Outlook Express - Using UTF encoding


Thought I've set the display in UTF8 encoding, Outlook Express returns to Western Europe Encoding(ISO), is there any solution to permanently maintain the UTF8 ecoding?


  • In Options - Read / international setting tab, verify if the option to use the default encoding for all incoming messages, is unchecked?

Thanks to junico for this tip.
