Hi,

I'm getting weird symbols in emails from some users, only these users, while others dont see them in their emails. Also, I dont see any other emails with these symbols.

For eg. "I meant Lou’s e-mail address.  That’s who wants the invoice. "

This is often the case when getting spam.
Are thesze legimate senders and is the email legit.

Foriegn language codes and letters are one way around email filters

Sorry for delayed response.

The issue is resolved, the user had accidentally turned on French on the keyboard by pressing a combination key.
