I am trying to send an email using ASP and CDOSYS that uses some french characters. The email is sending correctly but the french characters are not display properly. I have tried the UTF-8 character set but not sure whether it has been setup correctly or if there is another issue.
Set myMail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
	myMail.Subject = "The Subject Line"
	myMail.From = "sender@address.com"
	myMail.To = "recipient@address.com"
	myMail.BodyPart.Charset = "utf-8"
	myMail.HTMLBody = "<html><head></head><body>" & MyBody & "</body></html>"
	myMail.HTMLBodyPart.Charset = "utf-8"
	myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
	("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing")=1
	'Name or IP of remote SMTP server
	myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
	("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") _
	="localhost"
	'Server port
	myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
	("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") _
	=25 
	myMail.Configuration.Fields.Update
	myMail.Send
	set myMail = nothing

Maybe?
I just found this, and not sure if it will help or not.

 
        myMail.BodyPart.charset="unicode-1-1-utf-8"
 
        myMail.Subject=mail_subject
        myMail.From =mail_from
        myMail.To=mail_to
        myMail.TextBody =CreateMailHtml(mail_body)
        myMail.HTMLBody=CreateMailHtml(mail_body)
        myMail.HTMLBodyPart.CharSet="utf-8"
        myMail.Send

Still no solution - ended up using a replace function to insert the html character codes.

Sometimes there is no solutions, or the ones that have the solutions are not on EE...
But the Replace function is sometimes the best thing to use when you have no other way
Of doing something....

Good Luck
