    It seems to never end. Always a new problem appearring out of nowhere. I have a french computer and lately I can't send any accents when using Yahoo Mail or Hotmail. I'm even using Yahoo.ca in French. I can write the accents and I see them on screen but when my friends receive the messages they just receive unreadable symbols. The same thing when I receive a reply for a message I've sent. The original message is full of unreadable symbols instead of my french accents.

    Another unsolved mystery ! I have other unsolved mysteries in here...

    Thanks

    Yes. The problem comes from me. Everything was ok before I formatted my computer. Although I have no idea what I've done wrong. It was working great before.

    Funny thing is, I can send a good e-mail my friends will receive with french accents from Outlook Express 6 but it doesn't work anymore with Yahoo Mail.
