unfortunately that's not the case... at least on my machine... I've had the
same problem here and therefor dropped evolution again and returned to
I have a chinese system and start evolution in a chinese terminal. However
the character problems are the same. I guess that evolution cannot handle
multibyte characters correctly... (like many other programs too *sigh*).
If anyone else has a working solution, I would like to get some advice.
Or does anyone else know a graphical mail client which supports pgp,
multibyte and unicode, where I can change the encoding on the fly for
reading and writing and supports mailing lists and filters?
