Thanks everyone for all the suggestions!  I have made sure my endoding is 
set to Unicode (UTF-8), but I am still unable to read past posts with the 
diactrics.  The character encoding in Windows Mail under 'Format/Encoding' 
gives me 30 options, and I've tried opening with 11 different of those 
encoding options, but all I can still see is ??? for diacritics.  Sorry to 
trouble you, but am I the only one having this problem?

My interent provider is a private telephone company (since I live in a 
remote, rural area without access to the big internet provides), so maybe 
that is the problem?  Wish I was a computer geek to figure this all out,
