  1. Gettting email with strange characters in senders address


    Recently I have been getting many ads in my junk folder from senders with strange characters in their address:

    Example : The sender's address would be something like ÿÞ* < anyname @anydomain.com> where * could be any letter like V, S or T .

    The body of the email looks like its an advertisement .

    Any idea whats happening here ? Tks

    :)

    Using the Mail app in windows 10 (not outlook) can you add an email address to a safe sender list

    and also add an email address to a blocked list?

    WM6 mailclient address-error

    Hi everyone!

    We encounter a very strange effect on WM6 devices. An email is sent to a recipient within the company via exchange 2003 server and is then replicated via active sync on a WM6 device. If this email is sent from a sender with a german special character in
    its name then the display name is split up into two parts. When answering to this mail on the mobile device there is no correct address available. Choosing the first name of the sender with the pen then the address is correct.

    The names of persons without special characters is displayed in the mail list as follows:

    Storck, Christian

    People with special characters are displayed as follows:

    Häfele, Birgit <*** Email address is removed for privacy ***>

    When the mail is opened the address of the sender is displayed as this:

    Häfele; Birgit <*** Email address is removed for privacy ***>



    So the problem is, that the comma is being replaced by a semi-colon and we don not know why.

    Can anyone help?



    Regards

    Christian
