Viewing Chinese characters in Lotus Notes 6.5


I have one user who would like to be able to view her emails that come in Chinese. A box comes up and asks her which Charset she would like to use to show the mail. She chooses Chinese but it just comes up all mesed up. What do I need to install for her to be able to see her Chinese emails. Do I need to install something on her CLient or on the Domino server. Again she doesn't need the email translated as she can read chinese, but rather the client needs to be able to display the character set.

Thanks in advance!

Hello lontek!

To install East Asian language files on your computer
Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
On the Languages tab, under Supplemental language support, select the Install files for East Asian languages check box.
Click OK or Apply.
You will prompted to insert the Windows CD-ROM or point to a network location where the files are located.

After the files are installed, you must restart your computer.

To open Regional and Language Options, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.
You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure.
The East Asian languages include Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The files for most other languages are installed on your computer automatically by Windows.
It is recommended that you install these files only if you are going to be entering or receiving text in one or more of these languages. The Chinese, Japanese, and Korean files require about 230 megabytes (MB) of space on your hard disk. In addition to the language files, Input Method Editors (IMEs) are installed for each of the three languages.
After you install the East Asian language files on your computer's hard disk, you must add the individual languages for which you want to enter and display text. After you add a language, the language is loaded into memory every time you start your computer. For more information, click Related Topics.
To remove the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean files from your computer, clear the check box, and then click OK or Apply.
