: : Hi everyone, I wonder if anyone can help me, I regularly e-mail my friends in Ukraine but since I dont understand computers too much I cannot seem to solve my problem. I cannot seem to be able to receive e-mails in Russian cyrillic. I am based in england and am currently using hotmail. My current methods are....I either send my letters in English or I translate them into Cyrillic, print it, then scan it, then send it to them as an attatchment. My friends do the same for letters to me, they write their letters in cyrillic, scan it then send it to me as an attatchment. . It seems that my computer cannot read cyrillic and any e-mails that are sent to me from Ukraine using a cyrillic keyboard just ends up in my inbox as a mass of unreadable didgets like this " 00Ooo00o11 1000oo100 OooO ooo11Oo1 OOO11ooo" I think I read somewhere that cyrillic cannot be sent down a phone line? I really havent a clue how to resolve this problem so any one who knows the answer please let me know. I have thought about getting a Ukrainian/russian email address but got a feeling this idea may be well off target. Thanks
: If you have the windows operating system you can use "my computer" to load Russian onto your computer. When you have done this, in the lower right of the computer screen it will have a toggle for languages with EN for English showing. When you want to send an E-mail in Russian, open the e-mail to get started and then when you begin the message, change to Russian. If you need help e-mail me.
