SYMPTOMS

In a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 environment, a user uses an East Asian language such as Chinese, Korean, or Japanese in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 on a Windows-based computer. Additionally, the user tries to delegate permission to another Exchange Server 2007 user. When the delegate check a delegate e-mail message, the Subject line of the message is corrupted. For example, the Subject line is displayed as follows:
?????? <initiator>?????
However, the message is displayed correctly in the Sent Items folder of the initiator. For example, the Subject line is displayed in the correct language as follows:
You have been designated as a delegate for <initiator>
Note Users who use Outlook 2007 together with a language pack may also encounter this problem.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because Exchange Server 2007 uses the default language codepage ISO-8859-1 to process the message. None of the languages that are mentioned in the "Symptoms" section can be decoded correctly when the ISO-8859-1 default code page is used.
