You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Outlook Web App virtual directories" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.

This example configures Outlook Web App to always use UTF-8 encoded UNICODE characters on all outgoing e-mail messages.

The AlwaysUTF8 character setting on the Outlook Web App virtual directory takes precedence over user-defined settings. Outlook Web App sets the UTF-8 character on all outgoing e-mail messages, regardless of the user's language choice in Outlook Web App.

For more information about syntax and parameters, see Set-OwaVirtualDirectory.

After you configure character settings for Outlook Web App, you may also want to Configure Language Settings for Outlook Web App.
