£ being prefixed with Â in email messages sent using CDO
Posted on 2012-04-02
I recently did a Windows 2003 Server update and since then, plain text emails sent from my website using CDOSYS prefix £ signs with Â, e.g. Â£
Furthermore, prior to the Windows update, plain text emails from my website were sent using a fixed pitch font (Courier or Courier New maybe). However, they are now sent using a variable font causing email content to be misaligned.
So, in summary...
1. I want to remove the Â£ and only display £
2. I want to send the email using a fixed pitch font.
Here is the ASP code I currently use to send the email...
myMail.Subject="blah de blah"
Please note, I have tried adding the following line but it made no difference (i.e. Â£ remained in the emails)...
myMail.bodypart.charset = "utf-8"
I hope someone can help!
