Foreign characters not surviving import of subscriber list

I've imported a list with non-English characters such as ü and they've not survived the import i.e. replace by evil square blocks.

Will have to avoid personalisation for this campaign unless anyone has any ideas? Please help.

Many thanks.

If you change the file to UTF-8 encoding, the foreign characters will import correctly.

Let us know if that doesn't work for you.

Thanks, Stig - found this today and we saved our source CSV as UTF-8 (in Notepad) and the import worked i.e. all foreign characters survived.
