email sent letters garbled like a kind of code.

Posted

Thunderbird worked well on windows 10 until the first of this year. When I write an email or re-send (some) emails, the email shows up with a lot of the letters garbled like code. Also a number of *s at front and end of sentences. All three of my computers are suffering the same maladies. All windows 10, Norton, Malware, same problems. I have tried every change that I am allowed on Thunderbird, and have use the compact function and repair folder function, to no avail.

Is it possible the problem is related to a problem with Thunderbird and ATT or Comcast, or my modem/router?

Are all emails in English language or should they be displaying special characters in another language?

Having a screenshot would help. Could you please provide one?

If you need help to create a screenshot, please see How do I create a screenshot of my problem?

Once you've done this, attach the saved screenshot file to your forum post by clicking the Browse... button below the Post your reply box. This will help us to visualize the problem.

Thank you!
