Description of problem:
Evolution does not display GB2312 (Simplified Chinese) e-mail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Created Simplified Chinese e-mail using Mozilla sent to self.
2. Open message with Mozilla -- looks OK.
3. Open message with evolution -- no GB2312 characters displayed. Selecting the
Character Encoding manually did not correct the problem.
Actual Results: Email GB2312 characters are not displayed.
Expected Results: Email GB2312 characters are detected automatically and
This bug report at Ximian is a duplicate:
Quite possibly due to the font you have chosen for display not having gb2312
coverage. You might want to try choosing different fonts in the gtkhtml font
configuration to see if that helps.
Is this any better with Phoebe?
No change with Red Hat 9 (release). I can even log in with the environment set
to Simplified Chinese and no luck.
The Simplified Chinese messages do display properly in the Mozilla 1.3 mail client.
evolution 1.4 handles this much better since it uses gtk2 and pango
