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

Thanks, guenth, but I'm afraid I'm using 1.4.5 so the fault may lie with
the sending party.  Guess what I was looking for was some sort of
FAQ-ish answer that politely and swiftly lets people in on what they're
doing wrong.   But now that I can switch between ISO-8859-1 and UTF-8
with the stroke of some buttons, the problem isn't as big anymore.
