So I recently started emailing a friend of mine at her office and for some reason any single or double quotes are getting all mangled and replaced with an ugly string of special characters. I was curious if anyone had any guesses as to why this would be. We’re going to try and sort it out, and anything I learn doing trial and error I’ll report here, but that’ll take a while emailing back and forth so hopefully you guys can help me corral it if you’ve seen it before.
Here’s the configuration:
My email system. On a PC with Windows XP, using Hotmail accessed via Outlook 2003. The messages are composed using Word’s association with Outlook in Arial 1o point in HTML format.
She receives on an as yet undetermined system with Yahoo mail, almost certainly via the web.
So far I’ve not seen this issue when emailing anyone else, many of whom use Yahoo, and I’ve been using my configuration for over a year. Your thoughts will be appreciated.
