How to use special characters inside tha mail

Recommended Posts

shiv

Hi All,

I want to use special charaters inside the subject of any composed mail using outlook

Suppose i want to use "&!@#$%^&*<>?*" as subject but what's happning is that these special charaters are not getting pasted in the subject text area

Instead browser is getting opened when this event takes place. i think autoit is reading these special charaters as some other command or anything else

However instad of special charaters if i use simple letters like "test mail" then it is working fine.

Can you please suggest how can i use these special charaters as simple string

Outlook: Fine, you could try my OutlookEX UDF. Makes things a lot easier.

Browser? What browser? Why?

Can we please suggest that you post your code so we can see what's going wrong?

Yes, you can.

I've just sent a mail with the string you specified using Outlook.

Yeaph we can do this manually,

But can we do this with the code i.e. can we store a group of special charaters with in a variable

I used it as

$sSpecialCharaters = "a"&"!"&"@"&"#"&"$"&"%"&"^"&"&"&"*"&"?"&"/"&"|"&""&"("&"<"&">"&","&"."&":"&";"&"~"&"`"&"+"&"="

but did not succeed

Then i used it as

" Test!@#$%^&*?/|(<>,.:;'~`+=Mail"

but failed again

One more thicg want to mentioned is that i am using send function

like send($sSpecialCharaters) to send these charaters in the subject field

Global $sSpecialChars = "&!@#$%^&*<>?*"
ConsoleWrite($sSpecialChars & @LF)
$sSpecialChars =  "a!@#$%^&*?/|\(<>,.:;~`+="
ConsoleWrite($sSpecialChars & @LF)
$sSpecialChars = " Test!@#$%^&*?/|\(<>,.:;'~`+=Mail"
ConsoleWrite($sSpecialChars & @LF)

Works fine for me
