Ahhhh... thanks ! It's sometimes not obvious to understand all these
"OP", "FYI", "AFAIK" and so on ;)

I found a thread about Thunderbird and UTF-8 : very funny :
http://schwern.hates-software.com/2008/01/29/e100622d.html

Looks like UTF-8 for all emails is set in Display->fonts, and not in
"advanced" or "general" tabs, nor even in the "composing" tab...
I'll really consider giving kmail a try, I think...

By the way : what's the default mail software in Kubuntu ? I see no
other emailing software in K->Internet than Thunderbird ?
Maybe because I just upgraded from Gutsy...

Cheers
