How can I convert ASCII character codes back into Simplified Chinese?

Posted on 2008-06-23
Last Modified: 2013-12-07
I wrote a note in the Simplified Chinese and eMailed it to myself.  

I could see all of the characters prior to eMailing it.

Unfortunately, when it arrived, it was just a string of character codes.  What can I do to re-convert it back into Chinese writing?

Checking the sent-mail showed the same set of codes.

Both of my computers have Asian Language Packs installed, and I haven't encountered this problem previously.

Thanks in advance

In the menu, go Programs -> E-mail Fixer

That will convert it back for you. You should check your email sending options to make sure you have a format that supports Chinese text.
