I have asp application, it uses aspemail soft to send email on UTf-8 fomat.
I am testing receiving email on Outlook Express. when I try to send chinese or korean email  then some characters in Subject line becomes "???" sign.
But the body of the text is fine.

I followed the following code according to the aspemail.com, mannual. but still doesnot work.
 Mail.Subject = Mail.EncodeHeader( Request("Subject"), "utf-8")
 Mail.CharSet = "UTF-8"
 Mail.ContentTransferEncoding = "Quoted-Printable"

any help would be very much appreciated

Are you setting the mail subject again after executing

Mail.Subject = Mail.EncodeHeader( Request("Subject"), "utf-8")

Cause what you're really supposed to do is use

dim mySubject = "Your subject text"
Mail.Subject = Mail.EncodeHeader( Request(mySubject), "utf-8")

If that doesn't help try to explicitly setingt Session.CodePage=65001
