Hi @user5921094,

 

Our system uses UTF-8, or 8-bit character set. If you are receiving this error you are most likely using a character set that is not supported. Can you verify if you are using a different character set?

Re: Sending an HTML Template through an API

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html charset=ISO-8859-1" />
  </head>
	<body>
		<table class="main" style="width:612px; text-align:center; margin: 0 auto; border: 0px;padding:0px;border-spacing:0px">
Thank you Jimmy, so the charset which I am using is incorrect?

Hi @user5921094,

 

The character set you are specifying is fine; however are you including any actual characters in the text you are submitting that is outside of the standard character set allowed by the one you are specifying?
