Re: Send Space & Free Downloads
Also, before you change the setting, down arrow through all of them and remember what ssetting you are using, in case you want to return to it for some reason.
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.ï¿½ 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.ï¿½ It's not just on lists, it's to anyone regardless of text
It's very annoying and makes me look like a worse writer than I am.ï¿½ LOL
