  • Sending text email to results in a formatting error I believe is related to WordPress. All apostrophes come out as question marks via Posterous autopost.


    This is the opening sentence of my blog entry, ‘blogentry’.


    This is the opening sentence of my blog entry, ?blogentry?.

    The person sending the emails to the site is not me, it is a person for whom I built the site. We are working together across the Internet, and he does not have any computer knowledge to speak of, so I can’t really ask him if he has sent the email in rich text format, utf-8, etc. Also, I strongly prefer not to set up another account to post myself and test various methods, because there are a large number of RSS subscribers who will be pinged – rather unprofessional.

    I have two other sites that I use many of the same plugins as this one. On both of those sites, there is no such issue. I also tested an MU site.

    I tested both UTF-8 encoding and Western ISO and could not reproduce the error on the other sites.

    Here is a list of plugins used on the site in question:

    All in One SEO Pack
    cbnet Ping Optimizer
    Fast and Secure Contact Form
    Free Traffic Getting SEO PluginTM 2.0
    Google XML Sitemaps
    Image Widget
    Permalinks Moved Permanently
    Theme Tweaker
    Ultimate Google Analytics
    Widget Context
    WordPress Database Backup

    Thanks in advance!
