	Hola, Leo.

	I had a similar problem several months ago, and I found that KMail was not 
really changing in the configuration my preference for charset.  Take a look 
at .kde/share/config/kmailrc and search for 8859-15 strings.  I made a copy, 
then I removed some line(s) regarding the wrong charset, and I run again 
KMail, with success.

	Give it a try.

	Best regards,
