Which CDO.Message Charset Should I Use?

Posts: n/a

I am relatively new to using CDO.Message, and I desperately need some

I have an ASP 3.0 application that uses CDO to send automatic alerts
through Exchange 2003. How do I determine which charset to use for the

The users of this application typically enter the HTMLBody message
through a form's textarea box. Often, they might cut and paste this
data from a MS Word file, which plays havoc on the message whenever
special characters are encountered, such as smart quotes, em dashes,

I have also tried the following with no success:
objMessage.BodyPart.CharSet = "us-ascii"
objMessage.BodyPart.CharSet = "utf-8"
objMessage.BodyPart.CharSet = "windows-1252"

Should I think about changing the charset in my General.asp page from
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=unicode"> to
something else?

I could really use some direction here to get this figured out. Thanks
in advance for any assistance you can offer!
