When I forward emails I received from someone else occasionally the recipient has these symbols added to my email. How can I avoid them? I am using Windows 7, SeaMonkey 2.49.3. Thanks.

Problem is still there. I checked and I am already using Unicode not Western. Now what?

I installed 2.49.4. It would be nice if SeaMonkey would notify me when they have updates. Just last week I checked Help/Check for Updates and it said "There are no updates available."

Auto-update is broken at the moment. There were some major infrastructure upheavals, and it isn't all sorted out yet.

I regularly see those symbols in email I receive. If I close the email and reopen it, then the symbols are no longer there.

I wish there would be a way to avoid them all together.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that didn't work for me. I did find someone else with my problem in a thread back in 2008 (below). However, it didn't look like there was an answer. He described many of the symbols I see from time to time.

Now I am getting this symbol at the end of sentences: � How do I get rid of that symbol on messages sent to me?

Try closing and reopening the email message.

Thank you. The problem seems to have disappeared for the time being.
