I am trying to use Powershell Send-mailmessage.


When I use ¤ (fx. ¤test@test.com) in the to string it fails with:

Send-MailMessage : A recipient must be specified.
At C:\tha\Untitled1.ps1:11 char:18
+  send-mailmessage <<<<  -To $EmailTo -From $EmailFrom -Subject $EmailSub -Body $EmailBody -Att
achment $EmailAtt -SmtpServer $EmailSmtp
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient:SmtpClient) [Send-M
   ailMessage], InvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvalidOperationException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.SendMailM
   essage


If I remove ¤ from the to string it works fine.


How do I get this to work?
