關於Gmail 對中文的不解(碼)之謎, 原來在Gmail help 的Can I send or read email in other languages? 有這樣的解答, 節錄如下:
If this doesn’t improve the problem, the improper display of characters might be the result of mail clients converting encodings during the transmission of messages.
In the meantime, you can view messages properly by opening the original sent message. To view the original message, please follow these steps:
Log in to your Gmail account
Open the conversation containing the message you would like to view
Click ‘More options’ at the top of the message
Click ‘Show original’
我試過用這個方法來開啟朋友從hotmail 寄來的文章, 還算成功!
