256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry


Users on a client computer that has regional settings set to one of the Eastern European values (such as Hungarian, or Croatian) may see either missing characters, or the wrong characters, where they are expecting characters from the extended character set.


The message has arrived over an X.400 Connector from a system that has sent the message in a T.61 (Teletex) body part. The message transfer agent (MTA) conversion code translates characters only from Code Page 850 (Western European) in this body part, so characters from Code Page 852 (Eastern European) are not translated correctly.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Exchange Server 5.5. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
