OWA exchange server 2003 ent edition

Hi all
I am running exchange server 2003 ent edition.  One of my clients when he opens up his OWA account, all the email contents are in chinease (he is the only one having this problem).  i went to options and tried to set the language to english saved it and logged off, but it does not work.  His OWA left hand column window is still in chinease , any suggestions to change it to english.

not sure if this will help but about half way down this page there is some info about setting the default language in OWA.


it looks like it uses some settings from internet explorer, does it come up in chinese what ever pc he is on ??

Is his left hand side column displayed in Chinese?? Do you mean the folder list on the left side frame??? If that is what you are referring, it cannot be changed. Reason is the user has logged into the mailbox using a chinese client for the first time (when his mailbox got created). That cannot be changed. The only way out is to delete and re-create the mailbox.
