Email Notifications are showing ? in place of £ / double space

Carol_MorrellCarol_Morrell Customer IT Monkey ✭

Our Email Notifications use a Cireson Powershell script and we have noticed that if a User adds a comment into a call with a £ or a double space, then these come out as a ? in the email notification which goes out.  For testing I entered the following comment to a call - 'Adding a comment to test - here's a double space  and here's a pound sign £.'  This is sent out in the email notification to the User as 'Adding a comment to test  - here's a double space? and here's a pound sign ?.' 

Has anyone ever come across this and does anyone know what we need to add into the powershell script to correct for this?

    Hi Carol,

    This could be the encoding. In the PowerShell script, in the line that sends the email (Send-MailMessage) add 
    Encoding UTF-8

    See if that helps?
