I have used Stellar Phoenix Mailbox program.
The problem with the greek language in the exported pst file has been solved when i run the program in Windows Xp.
Before that i have tried Win7,windows server 2008 and the result was the same.Chinese Characters.
I also had configure the machines(win7,server 2008) in Regional settings in order not to have any compatibility problem with the language.I can't understand why some programs are incompatible with the new OS versions.
