Sending email notifications in non-english Text

Hi,
Is it possible to send emails in language other than English?
We are trying to send email notifications in Arabic. We know that Arabic language pack is not available for SD 4.5.
But what we want is only to send email in Arabic. We tried modifying the templates and insert Arabic text that. On GUI client it does show text properly. But when email is sent it shows???

Looking forward to get any suggestions...

Regards,
Bhuvnesh

Hi!

You need to specify the e-mail encoding under system panel --> email settings.

I have tried with iso 8859-1 which shows Norwegian special characters. I guess there must be a similar encoding type for Arabic characters.

Hello,

You must enter the appropriate character set at the System Panel/E-Mail/[General]

Problem solved by specifying ISO-8859-6 as the character set in System Panel --> Email --> General tab.
