    My daughter's Japanese sister (remember, she was an exchange student for 11 months) sent an e-mail to my daughter's yahoo webmail account. There were some Japanese characters included that couldn't be read. I went to Tools -> Internet Options -> General tab -> Languages button and added Japanese. I closed IE and reopened it but the characters had not been rendered in Japanese.

    I checked in Control Panel under Regional and Language options and the computer is enabled for Asian language. We are running Windows XP SP2. It is completely updated. What am I missing?

    Have you tried forwarding it to your outlook and see if it can be read then?

    I'll suggest she do that and see if it works.
