Description:

Challenge

Email notifications sent by Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 are illegible or unexpectedly contain Chinese characters.

Cause

The issue is caused by an encoding conflict. By default, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 uses UTF-16 character encoding, and the problem appears under the following circumstances: Use of Mimecast or Thunderbirdor Office 365 organization located in Microsoft Azure China or Germany regions.

Solution
