Thank you for your help your characters seem to be reproduced correctly here
as well. I suspect that this is combined html document problem then, as the
snippit below shows the problem is in the quoted-printable section....
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
We want to stay in touch =E2=80=93 action needed
this is displayed as:
We want to stay in touch ق action needed
Not sure how quoted-printable is handled in kmail. Maybe the problem is in
the sending software but this is happening on at least 2 different email
Reading the email with Thunderbird does not show the problem.
