SYMPTOMS

When you use double-byte character set (DBCS) encoding in Microsoft Windows Mail, the text may be unreadable when you switch to Source view.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a problem with the RichEdit 4.1 control.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, change the encoding scheme to UTF-8 before you switch to Source view. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start Windows Mail.
  2. Click Create Mail, and then type any text for the body of the message.
  3. In the Format menu, point to Encoding, point to More, and then click Unicode (UTF-8).

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
