08:15 pm - Hotmail sucks so bad
Ok, so why is it that when I receive emails in Chinese (or Japanese) in my hotmail account, all I get are those funky little symbols?  So I have to forward it to my gmail account to actually read the contents as words and not try and decipher the littler question marks and percent signs.  Also, when someone sends an attachment that's in Chinese (like a .doc document), it won't even freaking download for me to open!!  That pisses me off.  As one of the most popular email options on the web you'd think they'd make it more convenient ya stupid microsoft.  Bill Gates I can't wait for the day you hit six feet under.

Mm... Hotmail keeps your view->character encoding at Windows, even if you have East Asian fonts installed and are viewing the characters. So, if you want to read them, go to View, then Character Encoding and change it. Yes, you will have to do that everytime you load Hotmail! Yaaaaaay.

*hugs Gmail*

No... I haven't had stuff disappear on me. That's super weird. I dunno, I always change my settings to Japanese encoding, since that's what I use most often. However, I think all Asian characters come up when you just switch it off Western Windows or whatever it defaults to. I have had Korean friends' names come up when I change the encoding. Stupid Hotmail.

That's odd. Mine works fine. o.O I have no idea why or how, but I get Japanese SPAM in my junk mailbox. *so confused* but it may be different for me being on a Mac. =-=

Ouch! You better hope Bill Gates isn't reading this (ha!). Anyways, Macs are much better than Pcs in many ways, including language options. And Hotmail isn't able to open any files/attachments lately, even ones in English!-James
