Description jørgen nørgaard 2005-09-09 06:19:38 UTC

Description of problem:
Full user names encoded in UTF-8 (default on the system) is not encoded correctly by squirrelmail.

It becomes something like:

"From: Jørgen Nørgaard <jnp@ifs.dk>"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure fedora is using UTF-8 (LANG=UTF-8 ?)
2. Create user name with for example '�' in full name
3. Send mail via squirrelmail on this system to this system.
4. read the mail with squirrelmail

Actual Results:  Full name of sender is inserted UTF-8 encoded.

Squirrelmail, however, when reading the mail does interpret full sender name properly. Some clients do
interpret reasonably, though probably using guess work part of the way.

Expected Results:  Either convert full name to iso-8859 (or what ever the webserver uses) or encode the mail header so it will 
be decoded or use a heuristic to detect encoding used.

Additional info:

Comment 1 jørgen nørgaard 2005-09-09 06:22:36 UTC
The '?' in step 2 should be 'ø' (decimal 216 in iso8859-1, &oslash;)
