Error while Reply massging in IOS devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    When reply massaging in Hebrew I'm getting encoding error massage, after investigating the issue I understood that I need to disable UTF-8 characters on OWA, I found the following syntax: Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -identity "Owa (Default Web Site)" -OutboundCharset AlwaysUTF8

    How can I use this syntax to not use UTF-8?

  • Hi Dvir,

    Base on my knowledge, there is no way to disable UTF-8 only ,however, you can try to use "UserLanguageChoice"parameter to specify the character that's used in the Outlook Web App user interface to encode messages:

    Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -identity "Owa (Default Web Site)" -OutboundCharset UserLanguageChoice

    More details for your reference:
