after transfer of data from MS-outlook(mail ids) to application,mail ids are consisting of strange characters

P: n/a

Hello all,the following problem i encountered while transferring
data(mail ids) from MS-outlook to one application.Some mail ids after
came into the application looked as strange characters.Eg are [@ [.
[,@ . etc.I thought these are the Ascii characters but
i'm not quite sure about this.And also each mail id following a certain
format as you can observe from the above mail ids.Only one string is
repeating in all the 3 parts of the mail id.Is there any procedure to
convert these characters to the plain letters.I hope somebody will help
me in this regard to unfold this mystery.Bye.

Best Regards,

This looks like UTF-8 encoding

mail: echo '<bN******>' | tr -d '[A-S]'
