Japanese e-mail that is being sent out is being received as a blank e-mail

Posted on 2007-11-30

We have a user who has the Japanese language installed on their machine and when they compose an e-mail everything is showing up (Subject and the Body) and the e-mail sends fine, however, when the recipient receives the e-mail the language shows up in the Subject but the body of the e-mail is completely blank.  If the employee sends the e-mail internally everything receives fine.  We have contacted Barracuda about this issue thinking that was the issue but they are telling us it is not on their end.  Could it be something with Exchange?  We are running Exchange 2003 SP2.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Does the external recipient have the Japanese language/character pack install for their mail client?

I don't know, but why is it working if it is sent internally?  Not going outside of the network.

Do you do windows/office updates internally? Could have come down with those.

Thanks for your help.
