hi Moved to an iMac late last year, and my wife is having problems sending emails in Japanese. Some of her friends receive them fine, others receive garbage. I remember we had problems in XP with this as well, but eventually solved it by preselecting the text format to use. is there any way to do this in mail? I think you can go to mail properties and change the text manually but she won't want to do that for every mail. It'd be simpler to change it globally if possible. Also, what format do you recommend? I think on the PC we settled on JIS. oh, and we also have a problem where - if my wife has previously selected Japanese input method, then switched back to British English, it sometimes doesn't stick, and when you launch Safari its back to Japanese. Any ideas on that one?
