|Author/Date||Incoming charsets ?|
|Sometime I receive emails with…no text. If I export the email on the desktop and I open it with Notepad I can read the text.
I noticed that the emails with “hidden text” have either:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="gb2312"
Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="hz-gb-2312"
NB all these strings copied as I've found them in the "internet header" and pasted
Is something related to the “preferred charsets for receiving” setting ? Which is the correct setting ?
|Install the extra libraries to get support for those chinese character sets.|
|Thanks for your prompt reply but...Chinese ??? They are all emails in Italian, with latin charecters, how can it be ???|
|gb2312 is a chinese charset. What email client is sending these emails?
If you find that you receive email marked as "us-ascii" that is really a different charset, there is an option in the receive settings to change the charset to something else when it sees "us-ascii".
