    I have a strange fenomena on some of my mails from my pop server. The mail is displayed as chinese signs in stead of the regular font. I can not determine what mails get a chinese font in stead of the normal text font.
    (I tried searching the forum for any similar entries without luck)
    Can anyone help? :confused:

    It is most likely that someone is using a double-byte font that the phone doesn't have installed, or doesn't support. Double byte fonts frequently appear as chinese characters or boxes when not supported.

    Can HTML e-mail be disabled? If so, it should receive as plain text and avoid the whole double-byte font issue.

    I doubt that that is the case. These mails are sent from a web based imap account, but anyway is there a way to install such a font on the Magic to see if this is a solution? and no I can't find a way to disable HTML mails.

    Hmm. That's an interesting one then. I do not believe there's a way of installing fonts but I am still new to the G1 so I may be wrong.

    Have you tried getting ahold of Android support at TMO?
