An email arrived in the users inbox with a number of attachments. When he forwarded it he typed a message in the body of the email l. This was done in Russian and all looks fine on his PC. When it arrives at the recipients mailbox all the russian text has been changed to ??????????

The recipient needs to have Russian installed on there system, could you confirm if this is or is not the case?
