English Window XP can not display traditional Chinese Character in email titiles normally.

Currently, I'm using Window XP (English version).  Yet, some of my friends or business partners from Taiwan send me a lot of emails.  I'm using Outlook Express version 6.  BUT, when their mail reach my PC, the email title turns into some odd characters.  YET, the email body content can display traditional Chinese characters quite normally.

What I should do in oder to rectify the situation mentioned above ?

Can anyone help ?

Cheers

Greetings, StanleyLMW !

The Subject line is not being decoded properly. Follow the directions here to view in Chinese

You may need to download the Japanese language pack to decode Chinese.

Best wishes!

StanleyLMW,

There are other suggestions in the link besides adding Japanese language pack.  Please try them.

If no joy, OE is not decoding the Subject line correctly but is decoding Body correctly.  OE is limited.  Not sure what else to do.

Hi War1,

After I have installed the Jaqpanese language pack, I will tell you whether it is successful or not.

What I can say .... after installed the Japanese language pack, some more Chinese titles do really display normally but not all ....  Just wonder what those Taiwanese friend use ??  I'm now asking them (friends/business partners from Taiwanese/Mainland China) for more information.  Think that will close the case before next Monday if no further resolution found ... pls give me some more time ... I really would like to solve this cause my big boss ask me to fix it (big boss seldom look at the content, instead, they will look at the title first, therefore, email titles are important to them)...
