My e-mail provider has recently instituted a policy of rejecting all e-mails that have non-ASCII characters in the subject line. Of course, that means that Hungarian KudoZ questions are rejected when accented characters are used, which is the case more often than not. In turn, ProZ declares my e-mail address invalid and I cease to receive mail entirely from ProZ.
Also mail from friends and colleagues suffers.
My questions are: Does anyone else have the same problem and if yes what do you do about it? I have had the same e-mail address for 16 years and I am reluctant to just pick up and leave.

Well, at 16, maybe it is time to let your email address go its own way.

Seriously, which is more important to you, hanging on to an old email address or doing business? I understand that probably a lot of people know you using the old account, but in the long term it may be better to have another account and just redirect the remaining mail that goes to the old account.

Problem solved Apr 12, 2006

The System Administrator agreed to exempt my address from the policy. Thanks for the reply - what I really learned that this was a unique problem - it may however be a a sign of things to come.
