Windows Live Mail

When I recieve mail from a contact using Yahoo.com it comes all messed up with a bunch of symbols and letters. I was told I probably needed a mail update to get the missing fonts yahoo is using. How do I do this? IF it is the problem...........

Is Yahoo sending or receiving the mail?
Is the mail being sent or received via a browser using Yahoo's website or via Yahoo's mail service using an email client?
Is WLM (the client program) sending or receiving or both?

I just sent a "Rich Text" message to myself from the Yahoo website. I received it with WLM 2009. Worked fine with emoticons, stationary, formating, and an attached picture.

I noticed your email had AVG checking it. I'm suspicious of non-Microsoft antivirus programs, but in this case it seems especially odd that AVG is checking an email that originated from a Yahoo website. Are all your received emails stamped with that AVG signature? If so, I guess that means you are the one using AVG and it checks and stamps all your received email. But if that is not the case, the email did not originate at the Yahoo website since they would not add that signature to their outgoing emails.

yes I use AVG. Have done so for years. Actually this all started when my server changed their filter and virus whatever. But "they" swear it has nothing to do with my trouble.

"Hey you",
I see that you have updated WLM and questioned the font resolution. What you're seeing is raw eMail. why is the question. If you select a msg and view properties, details - you should see the same sort of code.

edit: Is it just Yahoo? Do you have another eMail server you could test-AOL?

Try turning on logging for eMail and see what it tells you.
