    Hello Guys,

    When I write cyrillic text in my email campaign on Interspire and save it the text turns into ??????? together with the Subejct.

    Anyone has an idea how to fix that?

    Thanks

    You should try switching to a proper piece of software - there are multiple offers available around the forum on which software to use etc. and it all depends on your overall goal. Lately I have been testing out TEAR - http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/total-email-auto-responder-1-email-marketing-tool.741559/ which seems to be doing the job perfectly, it's free for up to 100 emails too and I have no problems with inserting styling.

    It's not the software per se, it how his database accepts input. The default charset and collation are probably latin1 or utf8 (not true unicode).

    You must dump your database, change your charset to utf8mb4 and collation to utf8mb4_unicode_ui inside the sql file.
    Also, you VARCHAR can't be larger than 191, so you have to change those inside the file as well too. For example, you'll see a lot of VARCHAR(255). They need to be changed to VARCHAR(191).
    Change the MySQL/MariaDB servers my.cnf* to make those defaults. Import the database and Cyrillic and another other language should be saved in the database correctly.

    *
    [mysqld]
    ...
    ...
    character-set-client = utf8mb4
    character-set-client-handshake = FALSE
    character-set-server = utf8mb4
    collation-server = utf8mb4_unicode_ci
    ...
    ...
