Ron Summer gave an overview of email usage and answered many questions at this open discussion. Forwards, spam email, and email viruses were hot topics among the group, as well as online support and and helpful downloads that are available on the web.

You should use "Western European (ISO)" for Encoding. Places to check this in OE5 or OE6:

  • Tools, Options, Send, International
  • Tools, Options, Read, Font
  • Tools, Options, Read, International
  • When composing a message, look in Format, Encoding

    In OE, click Tools|Options|Security and set OE to run in the Restricted Zone. Then open Control Panel|Internet Options|Security, select Restricted Zone, click Custom, and turn off all scripting options. This might also prevent image attachments from displaying in OE however, since that depends on "Scripting for items marked safe", which is also what allows HTML to open a new browser window.
