Outlook 2007 Calendar event subject in question marks


  • Hi,

    I have a domain user that uses Outlook 2007. she is working on a shared Calender of her manager.

    some of the recurring events are showing with question marks in subject (????) instead of Hebrew.

    i checked and done several things, that didnt helped:

    - In another computer and in OWA, same user open same shared calendar - EVERYTHING OK

    - the manager has Blackberry and he's doing sync with his outlook, But his display is OK.

    - i install all the hebrew features on her computer in regional options and reset the computer

    -when opening the event we can see the display without the question marks

    - operation system Windows XP.

    - i ran this commands: outlook /resetfoldernames , outlook /resetoutlookbar outlook /cleanviews

    WHAT ELSE CAN I DO??? :)

  • It's a font encoding issue. Go to Tools, Options, Mail format, Internet format - what font/encoding is configured?

  • Hi


    Thank you for using Microsoft Office for IT Professionals Forums.

    Method A Make sure Unicode lanuage has been set to Hebrew:

    1. click Start, click Control Panel, click Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options, and then click Regional and Language Options
    2. On the Advanced tab, under Language for non-Unicode programs, click the language version of non-Unicode programs that will be used.

    Method B
    Check Blocked encoding list in outlook 2007

    Tools - > Options -> Junk e-mail -> International, clear Hebrew checkbox

    Method C

    1. Turn off Exchange cached mode
    2. Start outlook in SafeMode, check Add-in, antivirous program
    3. Remove and re-create Share calendar
    4. create a new Outlook profile test this issue.

    Best regards
