Probably a matter of fonts or encoding, because on my Linux box, I could see them fine. Except when I hit reply, at which point they turned into little boxes. Copy + paste restored them. Looking at Barbara's email, I see that it was sent in iso-8859-1 encoding, which makes sense. Do you have Mutt set up to automatically detect encodings? And what font do you use for your VT? The 'fixed' font might not be 8859-1 compatible. :Peter
