  • Hi,

    Where do you execute the command? On the Exchange Management Shell?

    According to your description, I understand you want to use the Unicode (UTF-8) character set.
    To set the User's IMAP Exchange Settings to use Unicode (UTF-8) font, you can take the following steps:
    1. Log into the Exchange Server.
    2. Go to Active Directory Users and Computers > Domain.
    3. Right click on a User and select Properties.
    4. Click on the Exchange Features Tab.
    5. Click on IMAP or IMAP4 and select Properties to open a separate Exchange Features window with the IMAP(4) tab.
    6. Uncheck the "Use protocol defaults" box.
    7. Under Mime encoding, either select 'Provide message body as HTML' or 'Both.'
    8. In the Default character set drop-down menu, select "Unicode (UTF-8).
    9. Uncheck the "Use Microsoft Exchange rich-text format" box.
    10. Check the "Enable fast message retrieval" box.
    11. Uncheck the "Include all public folders when a folder list is requested" box.
    12. Select the "OK" button to close the Exchange Features window.
    13. Select the "OK" button to close the User Properties window.
