Re: [Evolution] Character encoding in 1.4.x

Nice detective work Dan.

That wrapped up the case pretty nicely..  I was just cutting & pasting
in a quote and it didn't occur to me that there were curly quotes let
alone that this might produce an error anywhere (looked fine to me and
to many folks looking at the email).

Since Microsoft 'smart' quotes are so common still (not sure if that's
want the issue is or not).  I'd strongly suggest that in searching for
character types/languages, that a curly-quote not give any indication on
the language of the email.

The problem is your signature. The apostrophes in it are curly-quotes,
so evolution has to find an encoding that has the curly-quote characters
in it to send the message in. If you retype it using the standard
straight apostrophe character, then it will be able to send it in
