hello there,

strangely rc sends some kind of character encoding preamble and messes with the german umlaut "ü".
Quote
=?UTF-8?Q?Maximilian_v._L=C3=BCdinghausen_
instead of
Quote
Maximilian v. Lüdinghausen

does anyone know what s wrong with my config ? or is it a bug?
i'm really desprerate.
any idea would help!

outgoing emails are not sending with a name in my idendity with accent, like "René Salamanca"

I have to comment out line 57 in /program/steps/mail/sendmail.inc

but now, the outgoing email does not have a sender's name

In this line on /program/steps/mail/sendmail.inc

$sent = smtp_mail($from, $a_recipients, $header_str, $msg_body);

Code: [Select]
$from = 'rjsalamanca@mydomain.com';

$header_str = 'MIME-Version: 1.0
0: [email]rjsalamanca@mydomain.com[/email]
Date: Sun, 27 Aug 2006 18:32:19 -0400
From: =?UTF-8?Q?Ren=C3=A9_J._Salamanca_Vivas_<rjsalamanca@mydomain.com>?=
To: [email]rjsalamanca@anotherdomain.com[/email]
Subject: Sender
Organization: =?UTF-8?Q?Ideas_Din=C3=A1micas?=
Message-ID: <f74d09ed97da09aadbe73b4f23226a66@localhost>
X-Sender: [email]rjsalamanca@mydomain.com[/email]
User-Agent: RoundCube Webmail/0.1b
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=&quot;UTF-8&quot;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit';

what is wrong with that header_str ?

Replace code in line 111

From :
Code: [Select]
'From' => $identity_arr['string'],To :
Code: [Select]
'From' => '=?'.$message_charset.'?Q?'.imap_8bit($identity_arr['name']).'?= <'.$identity_arr['email'].'>',
