    accent character

    I have an email address from Germany that contains an accent character. I get an undeliverable message when I try to send email to this address. How can I get my Exchange 5.5 server to accept the message?

    Re: accent character

    What exactly is the error? Could it be on the receiving end? I have never seen an accent in an address, although I often see (and use) them in the "display name."

    Re: accent character

    Here is the error message. The delivery failure appears as soon as the message is sent, so I don't think it's getting past my exchange server.

    thanks,

    Re: accent character

    i'm not sure if you can do anything on your end - but try enclosing the address in quotes

    i think this will solve it:

    Re: accent character

    The quotes do not help. I don't think the article applies because I'm not using a pop3 client or display name. Would Microsoft Outlook be considered a pop3 client?

    Re: accent character

    Does it go through with a plain "o" character?

    Re: accent character

    It went through with a regular o. Someone else told me to use a regular o followed by an e. It went through that way as well.

    thanks for the help,
    Ken
