Re: Send Space & Free Downloads

Its an encoding mismatch.  If you see these symbols in many messages you read, you are reading messages using an encoding that isn’t commonly used on the list.  I know how you change encoding for messages you read but not for messages you write.  Perhaps the setting is the same and done with the same setting change.  Someone with more technical knowledge can explain it.  Different languages use different encodings for some carachters.
 
Try switching to Western and see if that solves the problem.
 
In thunderbird, open the menus, alt, then type v to move to the view menu.
Down arrow to encoding and press enter.
Down arrow to western and press enter.  Now see if messages you read have the unwanted carachters.  List members will, I hope, advise you about whether messages you send still have the unwanted carachters.

Oh yes, I know about them.� I've played around with the settings in Thunderbird, but they don't seem to go away.

 

Right now I have messages displaying in simple HTML and they're being sent with plain text.

 

I don't see them until I read a post on a list. It has to be something TB is putting in there.� It's not just on lists, it's to anyone regardless of text or HTML.

 

It's very annoying and makes me look like a worse writer than I am.� LOL

 

Any thoughts?

Mike, I use Google Chrome and Brave and this is how I download free Sendspace files.

 

I find the button saying download file.� There's a control shift keystroke associated with this, but I don't use that.� I use the context key and find the save link as option and press enter.� This opens a normal save as dialog.

 

I've used this method for quite a while and haven't gotten any nasties yet.

 

HTH

 

Lisa
