What you are getting is called character conversion, try the thread below most of your questions are answered. Hope this helps.

and Response wont work, this is a email class..
heres a snippet of a test im doing:
Please not that m.Encoding, i've tried Default, ASCII, Unicode, UTF8, and others, None have worked!
m.Encoding = Encoding.UTF8
m.Plain.Body = body;
msender.Name = (

i did a workaround.
i made it HTML and included all the html numbers for the special characters
ie Ā = some french letter.
Anyways, it works and looks like plain text (as it should) so i guess i'll leave it at that until i debug the encoder class in my Super SMTP Mail .dll
(which by the way, fully encodes images with cid tags, GREAT for email Newsletters!, AND allows Parameters to be inserted into the email like GAMMADYNE!)

html encoding plain text messages is a no-no.
The reason you think it worked because you were either viewing it in a browser or an html enabled email-viewer.
However YOU CANNOT ASSUME THE RECIPIENT WILL TOO.
When it comes to email you have a lot more unknowns to contend with than a browser client.

yes i agree, people reading it in plain text will see the ASCII html characters (ie #322) instead of the character they should see.
I will attempt other encoding alternatives.
thanks for the help

Actually, I had the same problem with accents and "€" when sending incoices in french to my customers.
I tried this and it works fine:
m.BodyEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF7
I got that from a french forum and it was helpful. Please let me know if it works for you.

use the below encoding will work fine. but you must let your web page and your source code (wherever contains the 'où tu peux jouer à des jeux, etc. Ça' like message) be the same encoding. Email Reader software with multiple encoding support will display

How do I code the SUBJECT line to handle French accented characters?
I'm sending out French e-mails as well with my ASPX.VB program. For the body of the message, I've used HTML characters for the French characters with accents. However, there are French accented characters in the SUBJECT Line as well. The French accented
characters appear as ? question marks and the HTML characters are not rendered, when received on the Outlook client. How do I code for this in my ASPX.VB program?
