Does anyone have any suggestions on following situations?
When I receive email from Outlook Express, the chinese font within this
email shows strange characters, but when other people receive email from
Microsoft Outlook, the chinese font within the same email display properly.
Does anyone have any suggestions what cause the problem and how to solve it?
If there is no solution for this case, can anyone give me any suggestions on
how to transfer all email from Outlook Express into Microsoft Outlook? and
set Microsoft Outlook as a default email application.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
Eric

In order to display Chinese message properly with a non-Chinese email
client, the message must be properly encoded (e.g. GB2312 or GB18030 for
Simplified Chinese). This *must* be done by the sender!

If the message is in HTML or Rich Text Format, then the Chinese
characters must be using a proper Chinese font.

Finally, any header lines (From, Subject) containing Chinese characters
will only display properly if Outlook is running in Unicode Mode.
See http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ork2003/HA011402611033.asp x

For transferring your mail from Outlook Express to Outlook, I hope
someone else here can supply the method. Please note that messages that
have already lost its multibyte character integrity will not gain it
back after transferring them to Outlook. Broken multibyte (Chinese)
characters cannot be unbroken by any conventional methods.
