Re: [Evolution] Email with wrong charsets

I'm on a Norwegian mailing list where a lot of mail is sent with another
charset than what it says in the header (this affects our special
characters æøåÆÅØ, and is therefore a nuisance).  The header says
charset=iso-8859-1, but the email is usually not displayed correctly
until I choose utf-8 manually.  

Some of this mail is sent by Outlook.  Now I don't think just letting
people know about this will help (they probably don't know what's
wrong).  Therefore I ask if there is some general cause of wrong charset
headers, or usual way to fix this problem, or does one have to upgrade?

Sounds strangely familiar and reminds me of this (fixed) bug:

This bug should be fixed in Evolution 1.4.5 (you are still using the
affected 1.4.4 version). So upgrading [1] may solve this issue. HTH


[1]  Disclaimer: Current stable tree is 1.4.x, current stable version is
1.4.5 and I heard rumors 1.4.6 will see the day of light soon. If there
are 1.4.x-snapshot versions, they are fine too, the most recent stable
packages and really stable (regardless of the snapshot part).

Evolution 1.5.x is the current *development* snapshot, not necessarily
stable. So do not use them, unless you feel adventurous. ;)

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
