Exchange 2010 OWA Greek Characters Problem

I have an Exchange 2010 running on Windows Server 2008. My problem is that when I access my emails through OWA, Greek characters are displayed as question marks (?)

The server’s system locale is set to Greek, and the computer used to access OWA also has its system locale set to Greek.

Same problem occurs when I access my emails through my iPhone. I see the exact same thing.

Any ideas?

Tried the suggested command

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Myname Mysurname" -Languages "el-GR"

But no result. The problem persists.

I tried various suggestions from the link you provided, and also from here

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124898.aspx

but no luck

Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -identity "Owa (Default Web Site)" -OutboundCharset AlwaysUTF8
Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -identity "Owa (Default Web Site)" -DefaultClientLanguage 1032
Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -identity "Owa (Default Web Site)" -LogonAndErrorLanguage 1032

Did you try an IISREST? Not sure if it needs to stop and restart for language changes?

I rebooted the machine

Yeah that'd restart IIS.

I'm fast running out of ideas if I'm honest.

There was a posting here about languages within IE:

But it's a very old posting.

The language on the computer I am accessing OWA with is set to English. I added Greek, no luck.

Weirdly, the same problem appears in Outlook. Not only OWA.

The problem was caused by the POP3 downloader. I modified the MX records so that the mail server will receive the emails directly, and the problem was fixed.
