If the incoming mail with simplified chinese fonts, it becomes unreadable in the inbox.

Any idea to fix it? Thanks.

Hi dickchan,

Does the problem occur with one user or all users?
you can do a quick test yourself:
-----------
1) login to any one of the free webmail, like gmail, hotmail, or yahoo;
2) send a test email with chinese subject and body to your outlook;
3) check the test email in your outlook to see whether you can see the subject in your inbox;
-----------

if it's only one user, probably the encoding settings is messed up in his email client.
if it's for all users, then i would suggest that make sure the correct language is selected for your Outlook and language pack for Windows is installed.  

hope it helps.

Hello dickchan,

Make sure Simplied Chinese Language Pack has be downloaded for your computer.  You get the laguage pack from Windows Update site.

Open control panel > Regional and language options > Advanced
Under "Language for non-unicode programs" select Chinese

Hope this helps!

Also, in Outlook options under Encoding, make sure Chinese is selected.
