All the accented characters in my message are replaced by weird characters


Your message looks like this:


The charset supported by the MDWorks platform is iso-8859-1.

This is the most compatible coding for the moment with email clients.

Some HTML editors (e.g. Dreamweaver CS 3) use another encoding by default: UTF-8.

This coding is not compatible with MDWorks.
