I think I know the reason for Mickey's wish:
When two mailing programs are not compatible, it can happen that one person is able to send a message using "original" Greek letters, but the receiver cannot identify them - he can see only weird signs on his screen.
The same happens when you try to send an "original" Greek text via Hotmail: The receiver will not be able to read it. (At least this is my experience.)
For this reason sometimes it is necessary to use "Greeklish" (= Greek written with the latin alphabet).
: If someone can't read the english alphabet, how are they going to read a message written in English but using Greek words?!?!?
: Either copy the Greek or try this:
: An den diabezete agglika, parakalo na metafrastei afto to minima st' ellinika. Periechei simantikes oikogeneiakes plirofories. Efcharisto.
: If I were you, I'd copy the Greek (alphabet) message exactly. How hard can it be to "draw" the same letters?
