Outlook Express 5

Font Selection:  First it is necessary to select a font that is able to display Unicode characters.  Andalus, Arial Unicode MS, Arabic Simplified, Arabic Transparent, Lucida Sans Unicode, Microsoft Sans Serif, Tahoma, Times New Roman, and Traditional Arabic are able to display some of the Unicode fonts.  Arial Unicode MS font displays a very wide range of Unicode characters.  For most Arabic text viewing, Times New Roman, Arabic Transparent or Traditional Arabic fonts should be suitable. However, if you experience any difficulties, Arial Unicode MS font should be tried. The Times New Roman font that comes with Windows 2000 is a Unicode font, and it displays Arabic, English,  Greek, and Hebrew fonts nicely.

The current release of Times New Roman of Windows 2000 displays Arabic, English, Greek, and Hebrew properly and is a good choice.  Prior versions of Times New Roman were not tested by me.

Outlook Express 5: First, click the mouse on Tools and select Options....

Read:  Click the mouse on Read and then select Fonts.

Third, click the mouse on Font settings.  Select Unicode and then a Proportional font that displays Unicode characters. After Unicode is highlighted, Unicode compatible fonts are displayed in the Proportional font box. Select Unicode (UTF-8) for Encoding.  Finally click the mouse on the Set as Default button to make it your default setting.

Send:  Click the mouse on Send.  

Then, click the mouse on International Settings.  Select Unicode (UTF-8) for the Default encoding.  

Encoding Selection: Second, it is necessary to select an encoding scheme that includes the Arabic, English, Greek, and Hebrew Unicode number ranges. Unicode(UTF-8) should be suitable for most email.

First, click the mouse on View .

Second, click the mouse on Encoding.  Third, click the mouse on Unicode (UTF-8).

After Outlook Express has a Unicode encoding and a compatible font, Arabic, English, Greek, and Hebrew  fonts should display in Outlook Express email properly.  

If there are difficulties with these browser and email configurations suggestions, please let me know.  I have not been able to do many tests.
