- Windows Mail
When you use double-byte character set (DBCS) encoding in Microsoft Windows Mail, the text may be unreadable when you switch to Source view.
This problem occurs because of a problem with the RichEdit 4.1 control.
To work around this problem, change the encoding scheme to UTF-8 before you switch to Source view. To do this, follow these steps:
- Start Windows Mail.
- Click Create Mail, and then type any text for the body of the message.
- In the Format menu, point to Encoding, point to More, and then click Unicode (UTF-8).
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
For more information about the RichEdit 4.1 control, visit the following Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Web site:
