Outlook 2007, UTF-8 & national characters

After installing Outlook 2007 I found that in some of the mails I received

the national characters like "ä" or "ö" have dropped out. It never happened

with Windows Mail that I have used until now. When I checked the mails I

found out that all of them used UTF-8 coding. If I change the encoding to

something else and then back to UTF-8 the national characters appear in the

message. When I close the message and open it again, the national characters

disappear. I have tried to change the settings in Outlook but with no

result. I plan to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7. W7 doesn't

support Windows Mail, which is the reason I wanted to change it to Outlook.

The problem is discussed in different forums but I haven't found any

solution to solve it. Most European languages like French, Spanish, German,

Portuguese, Polish, the Scandinavian languages etc. have special national

characters that don't exist in English language. So I'm by no means alone

with my problem.

I've got the same problem with scandinavian characters and outlook 2007 plain/text. This was not a problem prior to OL2007

anyone got an idea about this one? the workaround is not to use, and change from plain text to rich/html every time you reply to a plain text mail... puh

This is not a solution, but have you tested Outlook 2010?

Active bug reports are still being solicited for that version. If it's

still broken, you can mention that the issue is present in 2007 as well. :)

I have the same problem with Swedish characters in Outlook 2007 plain text incoming mail. Has anybody found a solution? I am not about to install Office 2010 that's for sure.

I don't know if it was fixed in Outlook 2007, but if not, it will never be fixed as Outlook 2007 is out of mainstream support.

I haven't heard of problems in Outlook 2010 or 2013, but it could be because the majority of people use HTML format, not plain text.
