G'day.

Rang up Apple and they directed me to here. I am subscribed to the following topic: <http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2139186> Now that is all well and good you might think but under 'My subscriptions' it states nothing. I have tried subscribing to it again and then it appears in the subscriptions and I unsubscribe but I still receive emails. This problem has persisted for about a year and when every day I receive an estimated 5-6 posts average if not more and it used to be up at around the 10-20 a day. My email inbox cannot take it anymore and neither can I. I bought an iPhone 4 to manage emails and when it is buzzing it's little chips out with these emails it stresses me to have to go through all of them to mark them as read.


Please if any moderators are here to assist with this issue it will never be forgotten.


And another silent issue is that I cannot log in under Safari but only through Firefox. I have tried deleting cookies and such and no success. Only on this MacBook Pro though. Any other computer I have success. Why? Has my computer been blacklisted through that specific browser? No matter, so long as I can be unsubscribed it will be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Michael Daeché

    Your inability to log in is because of the accent over the last letter in your name, as for the inability to unsubscribe, I'll ask the Hosts to look into it.

    Okay thank you. As a side note I log in with my email address and not my name but no matter.

    Hello Michael,

    "...log in with my email address and not my name..."

    Replace any and all accented characters with an equivalent letter.
    For example if there is a é present replace it with an e.

    Oh how I cannot thank you enough for that. Thank you. It's nice to be able to click on a link and view/reply in a streamlined Safari workflow as opposed to copy and paste links into Firefox.

    This sentence in ali brown's appeared without the � but with strange symbols instead.

    For example if there is a é present replace it with an e.

    After thinking a short while I remembered that I had changed the text encoding from default (what the web cite says) to Western(ISO Latin 1) in order to properly display a web site. When I changed it back ali brown�s post was corrected. The problem is that the same visual symbol is represented by different numbers in different encodings. To properly handle accented characters the software must know which encoding is being used both in your original sign-up and in your current sign-in and make a translation. As was the case in the web site I mentioned the proper encoding may not be available. No wonder the software cannot handle accented characters.

    EDIT Oh! No! My e with an acute accent morphed into something odd too!! I have mixed the encodings so play with them and see what you get.
