Re: [Evolution] Unknown encoding

This was the encoding from the mail that did not work correctly:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

This is the encoding after we changed the field encoding under
preferences (which was indeed empty) to the ISO charset:
Content-Type: text/plain
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Is this correct now?

Another strange thing is this:
This is the encoding of the HTML-Part:
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Why is it still utf-8?

Are you sure? Evolution will automatically change charsets as needed if
you type (or otherwise include) any foreign characters that aren't in
ISO-8859-1. Do a "Show Email Source" on one of the messages in your Sent
folder to make sure that it actually did get sent as ISO-8859-1.

Another strange thing is the X-Mailer the other person used:
X-Mailer: Internet Mail Service (5.5.2653.19)

Can someone give me a hint about this? Is this an old Exchange Server?
Can this be solved by switching the encoding to UTF-8?

Yes, that's Exchange 5.5. But it really should understand latin1...
Switching to UTF-8 would probably be worse.
