When I check my email via Outlook 2003, emails that contain Chinese characters in the subject line are displayed as question marks (???).  When I check my mail via Outlook webmail on an Exchange 2003 server, the same message's subject line contains the proper Chinese characters.  How do I get my Outlook 2003 client to display those same Chinese characters?

OS Win2k Pro.

Thanks

AFAIK you cannot read the two-byte characters in the subject and from fields within Outlook, but you can in the body and through your browser/webmail.

Have you recently upgrade your MS office suite?  I am experiencing the same issue on PC's that have been upgraded from MSoffice 97 to MS office 2003.
