Although I don't know if these will work, they may be worth a try. Windows Update makes available language packs, so you should make sure you have installed the French Language pack. Also, Windows Live Mail has a spell check feature under Options/Spelling with many downloadable language packs, including French.

thanks roncerr,

ill try those, but since it doesnt do it when i send myself an email, i would assume its some sort of encoding the sender is using making it incompatible with my client configuration...also i noticed earlier in the year, this senders emails were looking normal, so dont know whats changed?
