Good Afternoon all,

I have an exchange 2003 server running US English and I have a requirement to have a user configured with an SMTP address that has an é in it.

Is it possible to set up on this server and if so how, I have tried it but continue to get an error saying some of the characters are not valid and I cannot even enter the letter. even if I set the default keyboard to french the new email window wont accept the character when I type it.

Thanks in advance.
