    OWA and chinease chracters

    We are running exchange 2003 sp2

    I've got a number of users complianing that when they send an email using OWA it will be recieved in chinease.

    Doesn't happen to every one.

    Only seems to affect OWA as i did a test email to same recipient using full outlook client and he replied saying it was fine.

    Any ideas???/

    I haven't managed to find anything about this, it must be something to do with character encoding. The only thin I have found is:-

    Close Internet Explorer
    Copy two files (dhtmled.ocx and triedit.dll) from c:\programs files\common
    files\microsoft shared\triedit into c:\windows\system32

    open command prompt
    cd c:\windows\system32
    regsvr32 dhtmled.ocx
    regsvr32 triedit.dll

    Yes on the machine, not the server, I would imagine you or your admin would have to logon and do the "DOS" stuff.

    I have written a batch file to do what you said below.
    The files you mention are on the xp pcs. my win 7 office pc does not have those files, but does have the triedit folder.
    The users that have this issue i think are on vista or win 7.

    Those that have xp can try my bat file.

    Interesting - we had one bloke here who had his OWA in Russian - that followed him from machine to machine - we never found a real answer - he moved on in the end.
