I have a laptop I bought in America and the keyboard has neither the Pound or Euro symbols on the keyboard, only the $ symbol. Is there anyway I can set up Outlook EXPRESS to type these symbols in an e-mail.
in OE, click tools/options/read then at the bottom, click the Fonts button. mine is set on western european, see if yours is on american or something different. there is also a button for international settings but it gives no options for me to change anything.
doubt if this will help but hope it does.
have you also checked the languages setup in Control Panel is set to UK and not the USA, something there might help but im not too sure. good luck.
... but I've been out of the country. However, I've NOT solved the problem. I tried changing the keyboard settings, and with that I could type both the Euro & Pound symbols BUT the @ and " keys & symbols werte reversed.
I have tried changing the language settings, but without a result.
In WORD I have made, I think they are called, Macros, on the Toolbar, so that when I click on those buttons I get the relevent symbol.
There is one point, if you are sending these symbols via the Internet the recipient might not be able to see them, they usually end up as a question mark if they are reading the email in plain text without the Unicode set-up.
