    Default UTF-8 Encoding / international letters in email


    Searching the site surprisingly returned no entry on my search string "utf-8". I have big difficulties with transferring correct international letters from a form to the corresponding email. I found the $MAIL_OPTS = array and made an entry "utf-8" (~line 2900)

    PHP Code:
    $MAIL_OPTS = array(        "CharSet" => "utf-8",        ); 
    I even tried replacing all ISO-8859-1 with utf-8. Does not help. The output remains cryptic in case of international letters like .

    Can anyone understand and solve my problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    vergi es, das mit UTF-8 hinzubekommen. Trage beim HTML-File oben im HEAD-Bereich charset='ISO-8859-1' ein und verwende im HTML-File auch diesen Zeichensatz. Die E-Mail kommt dann richtig codiert an und auch die Umlaute stimmen dann. Habe es gerade noch mal ausprobiert. Funzt einwandfrei.
