Hi,

I'm trying to use cfmail. I want to send a plain text email and I want to use the UK pound sign(£) in the text. So far it comes out as a ? or a block. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,

S

I'm using plain text not html, so I cannot use £

# I don't think will work. I believe that is HTML.

What does work with my tests is #Chr(163)# in the place of £.
