“…Can I send my email newsletter in Arabic? When I send an email in Arabic to my mailing list, the Arabic characters do not display correctly. When the email is received, the content is displayed as ???? instead.”
Yes. There are two simple things that you must do to successfully send email newsletters in Arabic.
1. First, you must configure the Regional and Language Settings on your PC to use Arabic for non-Unicode programs.
2. You must select the Message Encoding and Character Set in GroupMail appropriate for the language you want to use. Arabic in this case.
