Weird characters when sending email.

I have a few client computers that have suddenly started sending out weird characters in place of their punctuation. Windows 7 machines with outlook 2016.

Go to File -> Options ,  a new window titled “Outlook Options” will appear. Click on the “Advanced” heading on the left side and scroll down to “International Options“.

Uncheck “Automatically select encoding for outgoing messages” and “Automatically select encoding for outgoing vCards” and choose “Unicode (UTF-8)” on both drop-down menus. Check “Allow UTF-8 support for the mailto: protocol.”

Go to File >> Options >> Advanced >> International options >> Automatically select encoding for outgoing messages and use the Western European (ISO) option.
