Windows 7: One email attachment in English, the other in an Asian script!

One email attachment in English, the other in an Asian script!

My wife and I receive separate emails concerning forthcoming events from a local society. The attachment in hers was in English mine in some Asian language.

All the full headers (message ID &c) and time sent were identical, but when I checked the properties very late last evening I was sure the file sizes differed considerably. This morning I detached both from their parent emails.What followed was even odder, that both are in the foreign script. I feel I am going doolally-tap, sp what could be going on? Ideas and advice. Please!

For others' benefit, what a friend told me was that probably the writer of the document had used a font unrecognized by my version of Word, which had chosen on randomly. The writer's font was showing in the document, but indeed was not on my system. The true text appeared once I had installed the font.

I hope that be of interest and perhaps help.
