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 
of charsets.

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
