    I have been sending messages perfectly happily but today people are receiving parts of their email with the font messed up.
    For example.
    SENT: However maybe we’ll just have to do it as we have for the time being if Ray doesn’t mind when he sends it across and you send across the (normally £100 every 3 months) £200 this time please.

    RECEIVED: However maybe we’ll just have to do it as we have for the time being if Ray doesn’t mind when he sends it across and you send across the (normally £100 every 3 months) £200 this time please.


    Any suggestions?

    outlook 2012 ?
    dont know that version

    outlook 2010 & 2013 for windows
    outlook 2011 for OSX

    what do you have

    is everyone having the issue

    how is outlook connected to the email service - is this a company exchange service
    or
    are you using a consumer type email system, gmail, outlook.com etc

    as an experiment , try changing the font and see if that helps

    seems to be £ and '

    Correction. Outlook 2010.
    No idea why I typed 2012.
    I have only had this complaint from one contact.
    Outlook connects to the internet from a personal computer via BT

    perhaps the issue is on there end, i have seen this sort of thing happen on certain email servers that corrupt the text

    if you want you can send me a couple of test emails - using the same text
