When writing emails in Bangla, don’t forget to check the spelling… When you can’t remember the Bengali meaning of a English word check the Online Bengali Dictionary:

The whole thing is useless if the receiver needs to go through that bloody complicated font installation to read mails in Bangla, sender also requires font installation, and that would be computer specific…..I would just be happy to use English or Benglish as such…. Changing UTF-8 to Gmail is not going to give you the ability to write in Bangla, you also need font installation…….

Hi Pelican, Easy man! what are you talking about? Windows comes with a Bangla font called Vrinda by default. So there is no need to install any fonts. :) That said, to view any Indian language text (e.g. Hindi, Bengali) properly you also need to to install something called ‘Support for complex script and right-to-left languages’. This is not installed on XP automatically, so when you are installing XP you need to install this as well. Else, later you can install this by inserting the XP installation disc anytime. On Vista however, this complex script support comes by default.

Are you able to see Bangla text on other websites. If you can, then probably the sender sent it using some wrong encoding. You are using Yahoo mail?
