How to: Send email with non-western (e.g. Japanese) characters in Outlook Web Access (e.g. 2003, e.g. from Safari)

  1. If your emails with Japanese sent from Safari arrive with unreadable characters (squares or question marks, meaning the recipient’s computer cannot decode how to display the character your computer sent), you may have set your browser to the wrong characterr encoding.
  2. However, the encoding Unicode (e.g. UTF-8) can handle both western and .
  3. Simply go to Safari (similarly in other browsers)/ Preferences / Appearances / Default Encoding and change to UTF-8, like so:
  4. charinput-japanese-outlook-owa-2003-utf8-sender1
  5. charinput-japanese-outlook-owa-2003-utf8-sender2
  6. charinput-japanese-outlook-owa-2003-utf8-sender3
  7. This has been tested to work already from/to OWA 2003.
  8. charinput-japanese-outlook-owa-2003-utf8-recipient4
  9. However, for your reference, here a matrix of imminent upgrades of email clients on your computer and the corresponding university server software:
