Public bug reported:
Kmail composer understands the "ibm866" charset but uses "ibm 866" (with
a space!) as its name in outgoing mail. This is incorrect, and other
mail clients are confused by this space. I was hit by this when I
received a mail with charset=ibm866, replied to it, and recipients could
not read the reply because Kmail tried to use the same charset when
replying but wrote 'charset="ibm 866"' in the header.
In Kmail, go to Settings -> Composer -> Charset, try to add "ibm866" to
the list. It adds "ibm 866" instead.
Make sure the option "Keep original charset when replying ..." (in the same menu) is checked.
Get a mail with charset="ibm866" (for example, create a simple ascii mail and edit "Content-Type:" field by hand).
Reply to this mail and view the reply as plain text. It has
The clients that cannot read this include (some versions of)
SquirrelMail, MS Outlook Express, The Bat.
I am using Gutsy, kmail version is 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2. Output of kmail --version is:
KMail: 1.9.6 (enterprise 0.20070907.709405)
