    Hi,

    Anyone ever come across this?

    An email sent from Outlook Express (via Hotmail) is having the name
    changed to plus signs - "John Smith" becomes "++++ +++++". This
    happens in both the body of the email and the header.

    The Account information is correct (ie, "Name:" on the General tab is
    "John Smith").

    TIA.

    Have you checked the font options?

    Don't think that's the problem - the rest of the text is okay.
