    I started having this issue recently - when I send a message in Outlook, when the recipient receives it, there are weird symbols in place of dashes and dots:

    my original message:


    Ok – well, I am reading it – I can take it over for you to see…………




    received message:
    Ok – well, I am reading it – I can take it over for you to see…………




    the text is set to 'plain text; -and this simply started recently..any ideas?

    Thanks!

    All recipients or just one?

    It may be the recipient's default encoding, or even font choice.

    If just one person, have that person try opening a mail in a different mail program or browser.
