    Hi guys,

    congratulation for this powerfull tool. I use jotform since 2 years and you realy have worked on it.

    But there is one problem I still have since the early days. I´m using the form in germany and we
    do have here some special characters in our language like ä ö ü and ß

    But everytime somebody uses one of these characters I get some unusefull signs (i´d like to say bullshit)
    in my email-notifications.

    Has somebody any idee whats wrong with my forms?

    Thanks

    Michael

    So, the problem is only happening on the emails? Or does it also happen when you look at the submission on Submissions page or in reports?

    When i look at the submissions page it looks very well. Also when I make a excel-download everything looks alright.

    It seems, that this is only a problem with the emails.

    I added this to our bug list. The problem is that when we make a test submission we usually do not get these errors. So, we usually cannot fix it since we cannot create the setup on your computer and your mail client. But we will give it a try.
