Multilingual Support

AY Mail 2. Any Edition

AY Mail supports International and Multilingual messages using Unicode or local character sets. The level of support depends on the operating system. Note that if you send English-only messages, then you should not be concerned.

Windows XP has the best multilingual support. You can freely compose messages on many languages provided that support for these languages is installed on your computer.

Windows NT 4.0+/2000 lets you create multilingual messages, but if you do not have proper fonts installed on your computer some of the multilingual text may appear as black or white squares or dots. This does not affect the messages that you are going to send, but may be difficult to work with.

Windows 95/98/ME lets you create messages only using the native language of the operating system. For example, if you have a localized Chinese version of Windows 95, you will be able to send Chinese messages, but not Japanese ones. If you move a project created on Japanese Windows 95 to a Chinese Windows 95 computer, Japanese text may be corrupted or lost. If you really want to send multilingual messages, consider upgrading to Windows XP.

AY Mail automatically selects the character set for the messages that you send based on the message composition. This works most of the time. You can select a specific character set or Unicode if you want.

When you use dates or currencies to personalize your messages, you can format them according to the language of your letter.

AY Mail can use Multilingual features of Microsoft Internet Explorer. It is not required for AY Mail to work, but having the latest version of the Internet Explorer will expand AY Mail capabilities. Therefore, if you want to use a character set and it doesn't seem to be supported by AY Mail, you can try to install Microsoft Internet Explorer.

AY Mail includes spell checker that has multiple language dictionaries.
