"Umlauts" How do I get them into "E" Mails?

  Bingalau 19:49 02 Mar 2005

Hello Helpers!
Does anybody know how to get umlauts/accents etc. into an "E" Mail? I have no problem when working in "Word" writing normal letters etc. by just clicking on "Insert">>"Symbol" and then choosing the one I want from the window that appears. Is there an easy way to do it in "E" Mails too ?.....Bingalau..

Try this.
Prepare your text in Word with all the umlouts etc.

Go to Edit, Select all , Copy.

Close the program

Open your E-mail account and start a new Message in HTML mode

In the message field place the cursor

Go to Edit/Paste [ or Ctrl-V]

Try this, it works on my comp. Use the number pad on the right not the one across the top.
Press alt + 132 = ä, alt + 129 = ü, alt + 137 = ë, alt + 139 = ï, alt + 148 = ö.
I use this method for Spanish, eg. alt + 164 = ñ
Have a go with various combinations and see what else there is that may be helpful to you.

Sorry forgot about this one as well. Press AltGr and a vowel and you should get á é í ó ú.

And I thought it impossible without language reorientation. Thanks Bingalau and the others

Of course another way is to use the Character Map (start>Programs>accessories>system tools)!
