Announce Lists and Simplified Chinese


I’m testing Dreamhost’s Announce Lists function. I’d like to use it to send newsletter to my subscribers.

Most of my newsletter subscribers are using popular free email services from China, e.g.,, etc.

When I test it with above email services, the Chinese messages are unreadable associated text box of Announce Lists: “Confirmation Email Subject:”, “Confirmation Email Message:” etc.

If I try it with gmail, all things work right.

Additional, How can I get “From Name:” text box to accept Chinese char. It seems no way to input non-latin char into it. I’d like to show a Chinese name in front of my subscribers.

Many thanks.

Thanks for any reply!

Make sure they are set up to encode messages in utf-8…
