How can I send extended characters, ie "très" in the subject of my SMTP email.

I want to include special characters in the subject field of my message, ie: "à très bientôt rené", but I receive "trhs bienttt reni" instead.

You will need to base64 encode the subject field in order to use extended characters like these. You can use the netcode object that is included in the standard IPWorks editions to do this.
