Some about charsets and kmail
well this message is mainly for the people who as me, are living in a world
with accents and different characters in the occidental world. I'm sure that
people with different alphabet the situation is worst :-)
I write mainly in three languages: Catalan, Spanish and English. My main
problems are in Catalan and Spanish with the accented chars and ç ñ.
I thought that I sent my messages using utf-8. Howeber I discovered that it
was not true. Although that in the kmail configuration, the editor part, the
charset, I have:
kmail sent message with the last one, I don't know why.
Also, I have selected the box with maintain the charset in the replies if is
possible. Howeber I have found that I replied a message with utf-8 with
iso8859-15, so the replied message is impossible so see ok because the merge
There are also a part in the configuration that I really don't understand
what does it means. In the appearance section the Message window tab, there
are two settings that I don't really understand:
Fallback character encoding
Override character encoding.
So, with all of this I would like to ask how I have to configure kmail to
minimize the encoding problems because all of this stuff is a bit messy for
