We store certain templates in database as long text. A part of the text looks as shown below.
"Please access the XYZ ™ site to review and update"
We retreive the template from database and send a email to our customer. When the email is sent out to an hotmail account the content gets changed to as shown below.
"Please access the XYZ T site to review and update"
I am using vb.net to access the database and retrieving the data. To send email I am using the .net SMTP Server.
I created the TM symbol by going to the Microsoft Office Document. Typing in
XYZ (TM) and it changed it to XYZ ™. I copied it into the template and updated the database.
Reading from the database and showing in web page (Text Box) it shows fine. While sending an email through browser or stand alone program it still shows file till I call the SMTP SendMail method of .net. When I look at the actual email it changes it
T. Would exchange server be responsible.?
Any input is appreciated.
Exchange Server is 2003. I don't know the product version.

You can change the automatic conversion of (tm) to the trademark symbol in Office, Tools -> Autocorrect and change it. Also try sending escape sequences instead, they should be interpreted by most mail programs. Try one of these:
