National characters and Hotmail

I do not know if this is a bug, missing feature or missing documentation.

When somebody sends me a mail using his Hotmail-account it shows up in balsa with all national characters replaced with '?'.

I have changed the setting "National (8-bit) characters in broken messages without codeset header" to use "west european"

My comment:
I notice that "Content-Type" is missing a "charset" description. Should not Balsa then use default charset or is this implying us-ascii?
I had the same problem in Mutt and added:
"charset-hook ascii iso-8859-1" in my .muttrc to solve it.

Am I sending to the right forum?
Is this also where I suggest improvements?


Out to lunch; if not back by five, out for dinner also.
