Hi Gurus,
I am using UTL_SMTP package to send mails from Oracle Applications when an event occurs and it is working fine. But some of the characters are not displaying correctly in mail content.

English Version:
utl_smtp.write_data(mail_conn,UTL_tcp.CRLF||'For additional order information, Login to:');
French Version:
utl_smtp.write_raw_data(mail_conn, utl_raw.cast_to_raw(convert('Pour plus d'information sur cette commande, entrez sur:','UTF8')));

but we are getting output as 'Pour plus d´┐Żinformation sur cette commande, entrez sur' instead of 'Pour plus d'information sur cette commande, entrez sur:'

Please let me know your inputs..
Thanks in Advance..
Venkanna

The challenge is to determine if the source of the problem is with the sender or the receiver/client.

Do you have a binary editor to inspect the content of the message at the client independent of the email client s/w.

As you stated, problem may be only a data presentation issue.

To help test where the culprit lies (reader or sender), you can telnet to your SMTP-server and send the data you want manually. Then check how it arrives at your reader.
If you don't know how to manually feed your SMTP-server, google for SMTP telnet HELO
