Author/Date How to send emails using UTF-8 char. code?
02/02/2005 12:09pm

I am looking in Options/accounts/send/Char.code, but cannot see UTF-8. I use both English and Chinese chars. How can I send them in UTF-8? Or, which is the best Char. code to send them to English-defaulted email clients and still get them display the Chinese characters?

Thanks!, Luis.

Scribe will send chinese text as utf-8 by default. No need to configure it. I'm not sure what the best charset for chinese is. But I suspect anyone with a remotely modern email client will be able to read a utf-8 message.

Narga: There is already a vietnamese translation. You should have a look at that first. Select it in the appearence options.

If you can supply information to help me reproduce the problem with keyboard entry then I will try and fix it. Basically I need:
a) a link to the Input Method Editor (IME) you are using to enter vietnamese characters.
b) an example of how to enter a word in vietnamese. (switch IME on, press a, f, c, n and it should look like *this*).

Thanks for reply fast, I use Unikey ( as a Input Method Editor (IME) to make vietnamese character in unicode utf-8, when I use it all the vietnamese character change to "?" mark in the input form, I use the TELEX mode to typing, ex: ễ (may be it can show correctly in utf-8 encoding) I'll type: e,e,x
When I use another programes as notepad the copy and paste my document then send mail, it work well.
I got some crack date when I click on email link Request&body=Full name (Ten ban): %0D%0AOrganization (Don vi): %0D%0AE-mail (Dia chi thu dien tu de nhan password): %0D%0AFor the purpose of (Muc dich su dung tai lieu nay):
