Problems with norwegian characters in Outlook

Hi,

I'm using Outlook 2007 and when I send mail my name is not displayed in the "from" -field when people recieve my mail. My name get lost because it contains norwegian characters. I have a norwegian version of Outlook and I have checked alle preferences and I do not know why it doesn't work. Anyone with a suggestion?

Sorry, but my best recommendation is to get a better email-adress (without norwegian characters).
And to change the name so it is without the characters. The main reason is that There are too many email-clients that can get problems with your characters - and the main thing is that the mail gets through correctly, right?

You can always write a full name with any characters INSIDE the mail, as a signature for example.

I understand, but this display name if it contains strange characters can still cause trouble for email-clients that are not well created.
To be on the safe side, I would still recommend to avoid "odd" characters in Display name too...
