When I receive mails with Word attachments which have German Umlaut

Content-Type: application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="=?windows-1252?Q?=C4nderung?= Konfiguration LDAPReader am 
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64


I don't really know, but some questions occur:

1) Does this happen only with Word, or is the file type irrelevant? i.e.
Can you send an arbitrary attachment an Umlaut in its name?

2) Can you send attachments with other non-Ascii characters, e.g.
Spanish accents?

3) Does the temp file saved by Evo appear with the correct name if you
use "ls" on the directory?

yes, it is there with correct UTF-8 coding of the chars of the file

this gave me the guess to set LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 in the Evo environment
and now all is fine, i.e. OOs opens the file correctly;

Evo 2.24.5 is unable to handover the doc to OpenOffice, see screen shoots of
the name in Evolution and the error message of OpenOffice. Seems somehow
a problem converting the name to something usefull in the local
filesystem and launch OO with the correct name.

Any idea how to fix this?

I would start by upgrading to a more recent version of Evo. The current
release is 2.30, so your version is several years old.

nice saying; I run FreeBSD 8-CURRENT in my production laptop (i.e. I depend on
it in my daily business); and I think this, running 8-CURRENT in a
laptop, is already ahead of much folks; updating Evo means, updating a
lot of stuff (Gnome) at the same time... I need a window of free time to
update my laptop all at once (and prepare this in some VM to compile all
the ports);

thanks anyway;
