Well, isn't this amusing. I received an e-mail from "Microsoft Company USA"... sent from a French domain... written in Hindi.

I'm tempted to write them a response in Arabic and see what happens.

That'd be fun but apparently Klingon isn't supported by Outlook. I had a whole story written up and everything but instead of those cool Klingon characters it's just   -.

That will be a font issue, as not all Unicode fonts include the Klingon section.  Try Arial or Times New Roman.

The web version of Outlook got an update. They removed the one button that I use the most: the 'mark as read' button that appears when you hover over an e-mail's subject line. :facepalm:
