Can I send you the message directly (it contains private information)?
The French accent [é] displays correctly in the sylpheed message window.
If I save the message or read the source (Ctrl-U), it shows [=E9]
I often encounter problems, when receiving emails from languages using
accents [eg. all the French accents are replaced with 3 dots, or a
random letter]. It is probably because the senders use HTML emails, and
a bad (euphemism) email client, that is Outlook.
My Commons Preferences > Display > Message were:
[x] Render HTML messages as text
[x] Treat HTML only messsages as attachment
Since I have disabled
[-] Render HTML messages as text
I must open troublesome messages in a browser, but the letters with
accents display correctly.
Although there is probably little I can do on my end. Is there a
display preference I might want to change (I use the default). Thank
