Well, well, looks like your email came to me automatically from Yahoo to my ISP email server and then to my Outlook on my PC and it came out fine with two Russian words. Fancy that eh ?
But when I used my Microsoft Explorer these two words were junk until I changed my :
For Microsoft’s Internet Explorer do the following and select from the top left corner of browser:
For Firefox Internet Browser do this:
So if one reads the Yahoo site’s messages using a Browser, then make sure you set your Browser to Encode everything as UNICODE UTF-8 !!!!!! as per my instructions above.
If you use Microsoft’s Outlook as the client mail editor like I do, then all should be OK. Providing that your ISP (Internet Service Provider) has a mail server that supports UNICODE UFT-8. Outlook automatically supports by default, this UNICODE UFT-8.
If you use old Windows it may not support
Here are some Polish letters. To see if they come out OK?
Ą Ć Ę Ł Ń Ó Ś Ż Ź
And Russian letters:
Й Ц У К Е Н Г Ш Щ З Х Ъ
Ф Ы В А П Р О Л Д Ж Э \
Я Ч С М И Т Ь Б Ю .
To be bale to type the Polish or Russian characters one must enable this in one’s computer keyboard entry system. Here is how this is done:
Go to left low corner of your screen and click on
Regional and Language Options
Click on Details
Make sure the Settings TAB is selected now.
Now in the Setting TAB click Language Bar…
Click on “Show the Language bar on the desktop”
Click on Add..
On the Input languages click on the down arrow. This will show all choices
Select language you want like Polish or Russian.
Click on OK
If you want another language , then do it again. You have to do this add for each language you want , one at a time.
THEN click OK, till you get out of this Control Panel.
Now you will see a brand new symbol in your lower right side of the screen. It will either show “EN” or “PL” or RU” , etc.. This tells you what language you have currently selected to use when you type. OF course it’s a little tricky as when you select Russian or Polish , you don’t know where these letters are on the keyboard since one usually has a English keyboard.
But it’s easy, click on the EN symbol in lowere right corner. A menu pops up, so now select Polish. So now this label changes to PL
To find Polish letters on your keyboard, simply hold down the right hand key labeled “alt” and press a letter like a, c, e, l, n, o, s, z, x. YOU will get the Polish letters. To get capitals, one must hold down the “shift key and the alt key then press the letter you want.
Lets see if all this works now.?

Aha !!! Zbigniew now we know thanks for that info; and Elzunia will be pleased too, I am sure.
Anyway, why is it that a year or so ago I could post Cyrillic to our forum but not now.
This will not lead to an answer anyway, so lets just post what ever we can.
