    Aimy, if you want help, you'll need to ask a question, and post some code for us to have a look at. It sounds like an HTML issue.

    I have a few questions
    1. Was the same exact e-mail sent to both computers? Meaning, the two separate e-mail addresses where in the same TO, CC or BCC statement?
    2. If not, did you compare the two mail() calls?
    3. What is the encoding set to in Outlook? I think this is under the View menu... Does setting the correct encoding solve the issue?
    4. Outlook also has a setting that removes "excess" characters, I don't recall where this is at, but when I get to work, I'll search for it.
    5. If you reply/forward the e-mail does the missing character automatically reappear?
