UTF-8 input / copy problem
I'm new user which is willing to buy Mach5 mailer but got sent out mail display trouble.

I've decided to use UTF-8 since it's a better standard than Big5 which will conflict and less characters.

My Windows XP set the "language for non-Unicode programs" to (Chinese-Taiwan) already.

I've set the "default merge encoding" to UTF-8, copying a passage of text from Notepad++ to HTML tab (Notepad++ shows "UTF-8), I found Mach5 mailer fail to display correctly, Chinese (UTF-8) all display in question marks, typing the word directly with IME (input method) is better, mailer can display correctly, but when sent out testing mail to Gmail, Gmail display garbage.

At last, I'm forced switch to Big5, copying a big5 from Notepad++ to mailer still not working, solution is save the text in HTM format (charset big5 in Notepad++), then drag the HTM file to Firefox, use CTRL-U (view source), then copy the source to mailer.

I doubt mailer did not complie in full Unicode SDK from Microsoft, causing all this chaos, I need to buy Mach5 mailer since I got project of mass email, but this problem really scare me.

Please advise.
