OK. I understand.

I was thinking that you need 'that original message, which my friend started commenting'.

We'll make a new one during monday.
(My hypermail doesn't preserve at all the original messages, I'm using a .forward line to change the messages into .html format.)

But the point is that the subject line reads in 'that original message' exactly as was put in my earlier message:

'TÄRKEÄ pöytäkirja'
(As was: <META NAME="Subject" CONTENT="TÄRKEÄ pöytäkirja">

When my friend uses 'the button' 'reply' of hypermail (in finnish version: 'Kommentoi') to reply to that message it changes into such kind of line of characters as you can see in the earlier message of mine. (That original message with subject line re: Tåäö^.. I don't now have.)

Probably the problem is with the settings of his e-mail program, but the weird thing is that he manages to get trough with his first message exactly the line:

TÄRKEÄ pöytäkirja

but *when he himself replies to it*, the characters start changing. I don't understand, why it doesn't do it already at the first time.

But my friend already went skiing today, our working day is over.

I just made another test using a third computer (mine doesn't show that odd behaviour) and it worked all OK (, that one uses 'eudora and win2000). So the problem is most probably with the settings of my friend's e-mail program.
