Those are characters. Nothing to do with fonts.

Thunderbird would tie me to a machine. I actually did that a few years ago, but now those messages are effectively lost due to machine changes. Keeping the messages on the cloud allows me to get them from many different tablets, lap/desktop systems. I'm often looking for older messages.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
You probably want to use IMAP rather than POP3. It leaves the emails on the server.

Yeah, I remember there was some setting I had done to be able to get them to Thunderbird, but then they disappeared from the web. And, actually, at the time, they didn't readily show up in Thunderbird. I had to "find" them in something other than the Inbox. But, that was long ago, so my memory is somewhat fuzzy.
