    Default Currency Symbol problems in emails

    Hi,

    I have tried everything to get the pound symbol to appear in an email I am designing. I have used UTF-8 charset and &pound; I have also used the format option in the merge field of <<Payable|$(|10|2>>. Neither of these options work, any help or advice gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Judith

    Judith, try charset of iso-8859-1 instead of UTF8

    Hi,

    Thank you, I tried that but it hasn't made any difference. It's still leaving Alpha with a GBP symbol but arriving in my inbox (outlook) with a question mark

    Open the received msg and check that Outlook is set to 'Western European'Capture.JPG
