Huh? Actually my Outlook XP decides what encoding to send the message in the moment I hit "Send", and I can't change anything. I try to send plain text (when I'm writing English) in the normal Windows encoding, but with weird characters it screws up. For instance, when I send plain text emails with BOTH Cyrillic and accented Latin-1 characters, it goes away as (variously) Chinese GB Simplified or Windows Korean. Actually my message on oe-ligatue came back as plain text BUT with a mix of Courier and Arial, and the encoding it shows is Windows Arabic!!! I hate this thing emphatically.
