If recipients can’t read email you send them

If recipients can’t read your email messages because they contain strange characters, you can try changing the encoding to UTF-8, a universal encoding that’s compatible with a wide range of email clients.

Change your encoding preference to UTF-8

  1. In iCloud Mail, choose Preferences from the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar.

  2. Click Composing.

  3. Select “Send outgoing messages using Unicode (UTF-8).”

  4. Click Done.
